    Final Exam Exemptions

     

    Students that are classified as Sophomores, Juniors or Seniors will have the opportunity to earn final exam exemptions.  These exemptions will be based on attendance, academics, and discipline records.  If the course is a STAAR tested subject, the exam will not be eligible for exemption.  If a student is exempt from taking an exam, he/she is still required to attend school on the day of the exam.  Students who qualify must meet the criteria below:

     

    ATTENDANCE AND ACADEMIC REQUIREMENTS:

     

    GRADE                                        ABSENCES

    90-100                                                3

    85-90                                                  2

    80-85                                                  1

     

    Students meeting the academic and attendance eligibility must also have a clear discipline history - NO ISS, OCS, or DAEP Placements.

     

    A student may choose to take an exam, even though he/she may qualify for an exemption.  If they choose to do so, the grade will only be used if it improves the overall semester average.

     

    Any absence counts against the student for exemption purposes.  The criteria listed below must be followed:

    1. Days missed because of school-sponsored field trips and college days do not count against a student for exemption purposes.  College days are limited to two days for trips and count as excused absences.  These two days must be used during junior and senior years.
    2. Exemptions will be awarded based on student attendance for each class period.  If a student has an unexcused absence for a particular class period, he/she will not receive an exemption for that class.
    3. Six tardies or more in any class will count as one absence.
    4. Court, partial day medical appointments, Religious holidays, TAPS/Veterans Funeral are all acceptable absences that do not count against exemptions.

     

    NUMBER OF CLASSES ELIGIBLE FOR EXEMPTION:

    • SENIORS - May earn 5 exemptions for fall and spring semesters.
    • JUNIORS - May earn 4 exemptions for the spring semester only.
    • SOPHOMORES - May earn 3 exemptions for the spring semester only.

SUPERINTENDENT MESSAGE

 Welcome to Wills Point Independent School District. I am excited to get the school year started. Wills Point is a great community and school district that offers a variety of choices for every student. Wills Point ISD is rich in tradition and is driven by innovation. I am truly blessed to be part of such a great school district that is surrounded by outstanding staff, students, parents, and community members. High expectations and success for all students is the foundation of this school district.  

The district will focus on three goals this school year.
(1) The improvement of reading skills and comprehension for all students.
(2) Ensuring that every student shows progress in core academic areas throughout the school year.
(3) Increase in student attendance.

This will be accomplished through high-level instruction, an outstanding Career Technical Education program, and partnerships between the school district, parents, businesses, and the community.

Technology will be a major focus for the district this school year. It is the district’s vision to provide more devices for students and teachers. The use of these devices will be integrated into teacher lesson in order to increase student engagement.
I look forward to seeing many great things from our students and staff this year. A culture of togetherness and responsibility ensure an outstanding year for Wills Point ISD!!!
