Winnebago High School Finals Exemption Policy

Winnebago High School believes that semester final exams are a meaningful way to assess course mastery and also a viable practice to expose students to and prepare them for taking high stakes tests/assessments. WHS has adopted a policy that allows for students to earn finals exemptions at times as a reward to encourage high academic performance and strong attendance. The link below can serve as a reference for students and parents to help them understand and take advantage of finals exemptions when possible.
