EXAMS AND CULMINATING PERFORMANCE TASK
An examination is a consolidation and demonstration of some or all of the overall expectations for a course and is administered at the end of the course during the formal exam period. A culminating performance task (CPT) is a consolidation and demonstration of some or all of the overall expectations for a course, and is administered towards the end of the course, during class time under the supervision of the teacher (outside of the formal exam period).
Students are expected to complete each of their scheduled culminating activities and formal exams in the time frame allotted for these activities. If a student is unable to do either due to illness, a medical certificate is mandatory to avoid a mark of zero. This certificate must be submitted to the Principal or designated Vice-Principal prior to the end of the examination period.
**If busses are cancelled due to inclement weather, the exams normally scheduled for that exam day are rescheduled for the identified snow day.**
Students must be in full uniform for all examinations. Any time spent getting into appropriate uniform will impact on the time remaining for the exam and students will not be given additional time to write their exam.
A student who misses and exam must provide a doctor’s note confirming the illness. Please contact the Attendance Office before the scheduled exam(s). Students who miss and exam without providing a doctor’s note will be given a mark of ZERO for the exam component. The students who missed an exam due to illness will write the exam on the alternate day as set out on the examination schedule. Time and place to be determined by the classroom teacher.
All students must be in the designated Exam Room by 8:12 am.

The cafeteria will be closed during the examination period.
In addition to these expectations, classroom teachers will provide additional classroom instructions as they pertain to textbooks, material allowed, etc.
