NNPS Cancels Exams and Adjusts High School Schedules

Posted on January 22, 2018 at 9:17 AM by Communications Department

Due to the inclement weather earlier this month, students in Newport News Public Schools have missed seven days. To address the missed instructional time, NNPS has omitted exams and made additional adjustments to the school calendar:
  • All scheduled exams for high school courses are canceled. The semester grades for high school students and middle school students enrolled in these courses will be calculated using first marking period and second marking period grades.
  • Tuesday, January 23, Wednesday, January 24, and Thursday, January 25, are full school days for all high school students; the dates were originally exam half-days for high school students.
  • Friday, January 26 will remain a teacher workday and students will not report to school
  • Monday, January 29, is a regular school day for all students. The date was originally a Professional Development Day for staff. 
  • State mandated Standards of Learning (SOL) tests scheduled to be given to middle and high school students in January will be administered on an amended schedule. Students and families will receive the adjusted SOL test schedules from their schools.
