final exams

Dear Students, Parents, and Families,  


In the fall of 2016, the Green Bay Area Public Schools approved a school calendar for the 2017-2018 year that did not include identified final exam days.  As a result, the first semester final exam schedule for January 2018 resulted in a change from previous year’s exams to accommodate a new exam schedule.


This year’s exams were to be completed in a format that was within the regular school day and class period, rather than having a three- day exam schedule with exams running for 90 minutes.  We become aware that the semester one exam schedule was problematic and created undue anxiety for students and families.


Administration worked in collaboration with students, staff, and parents on a solution for the concerns that arose and we are now able to communicate a revised second semester exam schedule.


Each of the four comprehensive high schools in Green Bay Area Public School District (East, West, Southwest, and Preble) will have the same exam schedule for second semester.  The exam schedule will be over a three-day period as follows:

During our three-day final exam schedule, it will be important to note the following important items:

  • Attendance: Student attendance during all exam periods is mandatory as instructional minutes are required by the Department of Public Instruction.  The only exception is during the periods identified as “Unit Lunch” and the period in the exam schedule (4, 5, or 6) that would be the students’ regular lunch period.  

  • Lunch: Regular school lunch options will be provided for all students during the period identified as “Unit Lunch”.  During this period, students may also enjoy an “open lunch” and leave campus without parent permission.

  • Exams: All exams will begin promptly at the scheduled time and will last 90 minutes.  The class period immediately prior to the exam is required. Students that are tardy (according to school tardy policy) to the class period will be denied entry and must report to the office.  They will be required to remain at school unless excused by a parent and must make-up the exam during the make-up exam period scheduled for Friday afternoon.

  • Study Halls: If a student has a study hall scheduled during a period, attendance is required unless pre-excused by a parent.  

  • Make-Up Exam Period: The final period of the exam schedule is reserved for make-up exams.  Each teacher will be available during the Make-Up Exam Period to administer exams.  Students should confirm with teachers if they will attend the make-up session and the specific start time of the exam.  In addition to make-up exams, students will use this period to clean out lockers, pay fees, return school resources, or complete other end of school year activities.  Upon completion of all make-up exams and other end of year activities, students are welcome to enjoy their summer vacation!
