May Calendar

Policy for Spring 2022- 

All final exams, with the exception of dual credit, are OPTIONAL for students (regardless of their grade/attendance) and can do no harm to the student’s grade. A student can elect to take none or up to all of their final exams during their class period on exam days. It is highly recommended for any student who is failing a class, or wants a higher grade, to take the exam in an effort to improve their semester grade. Exams are worth 20% of a student's overall semester grade. Students who choose to not take a final exam are not required to be in attendance during that exam period.

All dual credit courses that are awarding dual credit grades this semester are required to take final exams, per RLC guidelines. The Illinois State Board of Education and the Illinois Community College Board have jointly stated high school districts must follow the college's regulations for dual credit. Therefore, exams are not optional and they can lower a student’s grade in their dual credit class.

9-day Attendance Policy- The board of education reinstated the 9-day attendance policy for the Spring semester.
