Semester Exam Attendance Incentive Policy


Akins Early College High School will continue to offer Semester Exam Attendance Incentives. Students will have the opportunity to use their semester average (average of the first and second quarter) as their final exam score for their classes based on their grades, attendance, and behavior. Please read the complete policy. The purpose of the Attendance Incentive is to encourage students to be engaged in their learning.  Although this has been an atypical semester, there are many that have managed to successfully navigate through the process and that is to be commended!


Reminders: READ the policy. Students must be present on the day of their final. For more information, see the policy document and video below. UT OnRamps and Dual Credit courses are ineligible for this incentive. 

To figure out your attendance percentage: Log on the student portal, click on "Cloud," then click on "attendance." Remember, you need to have 90% attendance or higher in any class to use the incentive for your final exam score. 

Video Explaining the Policy: Coming Soon! 

Here is a helpful chart you can use to figure out, "what you need to get on the final to pass the semester?"
