VWHS students are required to take semester exams unless a course does not offer one, or students have been granted permission to exempt through the Renaissance program.

Students who do not show up for exams will receive a zero on the exam. They will also fail the entire course, even if their grade percentage is equivalent to a passing grade, because they did not fulfill the course requirements, which includes taking the exam.

Students absent from an exam must follow all the VWHS attendance policies and procedures, as adopted by the Van Wert City Board of Education.

All make-up exams will occur according to those policies and procedures.
