In anticipation of an extended campus closure, and continued PTS Online Learning, we are planning to implement a new assessment model in place of final exams for Middle and Upper School.
As such, end-of-year final exams are canceled. In its place, students will take an abbreviated online assessment during the scheduled exam week. The content and type of assessment will be at the discretion of the teacher. This online assessment grade will be weighted the same as a regular class assignment or test grade. The final grade for year-long courses will reflect the average of both semester grades.
It is our belief that ending the semester with a shorter assessment rather than a full exam will benefit the students by alleviating some of the pressure they may be experiencing because of an unexpected change to our academic year.
We wish you and your family good health and thank you for your understanding and support.
