Excused periods relate to those 11th and 12th grade students who have enough credits to fulfill transcript requirements and are not ‘at risk’ to graduate. Excused periods may be substituted at the beginning or end of the scheduled day to allow flexibility for the student to attend all classes for dual credit or to work. The following points relate to excused periods:

  1. If a student qualifies for excused periods and approval is granted, the student can apply the excused periods either at the beginning or end of the scheduled day.
  2. In deciding whether to choose an excused period, the student must keep in mind he/she must be enrolled in at least 6 credit courses during a semester in 11th grade and 5 credit courses in 12th grade.
  3. All students must have a lunch period.
