Lompoc Unified School District is not requiring students to take finals due to Thomas Fire

Posted: Updated:

Lompoc Unified School District has decided that students will not be required to take final exams for any class for this Fall Semester.

In a statement on the school district's website, it said in part:

"This will relieve the stress and anxiety associated with an extended finals period and allow our Spring Semester to commence as planned. Furthermore, we did not wish to put students in the position of returning to take final exams after a four-week absence from school."

Here's how students will be graded:

• Work (assignments, projects, papers) previously scheduled to be turned in this week is expected to be submitted by January 10th (each high school office will also be accepting work the week of December 18th through the 21st and placing in teacher boxes).

• Teachers have the right to assign or modify the course grade based on professional discretion (Education Code 49066).

• No student shall be penalized for not taking a final, specifically each teacher will be considering options to equalize the opportunity to improve grades for all students.

The Fall Semester grading window will remain open through January 10th. School resumes on January 8th.
