AP Testing & Attendance

AP Testing for the 2017-18 school year will be held May 7 - 11 and May 14 - 18.

In order to honor the hard work and dedication that has brought students to the final stage of taking an AP exam, students will receive an all-day school-related absence on their exam day(s). The Attendance Office has been provided with a list of students to excuse and is also made aware of students who do not attend testing.

Students should talk to their teachers regarding the work missed on the day of their exam, and are welcome to attend all classes that are outside of their testing window. If they are unable to return to classes after their exam, or do not attend school prior to their exam, the absence will be marked as school-related. This will allow students the flexibility to prepare and recover from the exam, and attend the classes that cannot be missed. Testing students who do choose to attend classes on their testing day must sign in and out at the Attendance Office.

  • Parents/guardians do not need to contact the Attendance Office to excuse their student for their student's AP Exam testing date(s).
  • Parents/guardians should only call or email the Attendance Office if they receive a 6 p.m. AutoDialer phone call/email absence notification regarding their testing student's attendance.
