Finals, shminals

High school students who pass Virginia’s Standards of Learning exams can skip the second-semester final in those courses in Stafford County.  The final also is optional for students with a C+ or better average and no more than two absences (three for seniors).

The board is discussing requiring all students to take finals or raising the bar for final skipping. The current policy does provide a motivation for students to do their best on the state exam.
