Exam Exemption Update


Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

Over the fall months of 2019, Principals throughout our region guided their School Advisory Councils through discussion to carefully examine CCRCE’s current Examination Exemption Protocol in high school courses. The review of the Protocol began because many schools felt that exemptions were no longer serving their original purpose, which was to motivate regular student attendance.
