 In addition to the units listed above, students will be REQUIRED to pass the Missouri and US Constitution Tests and take End Of Course Assessments for: Algebra I, English II, Biology, and Government. All students (except those for whom the IEP team has determined to be eligible for MAP-A) are expected to take the REQUIRED EOC Assessments at some time prior to graduation or exiting High School due to age limitations. Additional assessments in Geometry, English I, Algebra II, and American History will be administered at the discretion of District. 

The school staff will determine when a student with a disability will take the Required EOC Assessments. For each of the ADDITIONAL EOC Assessments, the student’s IEP team will make the decision regarding whether or not the students will participate in the assessment, with or without accommodations or if the student will be exempt from participation. 

  Students may be delayed in taking the EOC exam if the District team comprised of the high school principal, guidance counselor, and course teacher deem adequate academic progress is not being achieved. The team will meet prior to February 1st. Factors effecting delay include, but are not limited to: failure of the first semester and current grades at the time of the team meeting.
