Registering for this testing out option represents a firm commitment on the part of both the student and the parents/guardians. By registering, the student is asking the school to create the testing out materials, engage the services of a teacher to proctor the test in August, and make all the other preparations necessary for the student to test out.
Okemos High School does not distribute texts or supplemental resources for check out during the summer months. Instead, a list of texts along with supplemental resources will be made available. Students will receive information about the test and information about each course for which they register to test out.
Once a student has received credit by testing out, he/she may not earn credit for a course lower in course sequence in the same subject area.
Admission to many advanced placement courses continues to require a grade of at least B in all prerequisite courses and that a testing out credit may not necessarily meet this requirement.
The student must meet with his/her counselor to discuss the implications of testing out before submitting this testing out registration form.
If a student fails to apply for testing out by the deadline date and the student/parents/guardians believe extenuating circumstances exist and therefore seek an extension of the deadline date, an appeal can be made, in writing, to the principal. In hearing the appeal, the principal will, after conferencing with the area coordinator and any teacher in the department who has relevant information related to the request, determine whether a compelling reason to grant a variance exists.
The testing out dates are August 6, 2018 to August 10, 2018. There will be no make-up exams.
