Senior Incentive Plan 2019
Seniors who maintain high academic standards and exceptional attendance may earn the option to be exempt from second semester course exams in both year-long and semester courses.
Senior Incentive Plan
The following requirements must be met in order to be exempt from the exam for a course:
“A” average for the semester and no more than 4 excused absences during the semester.
“B” average for the semester and no more than 3 excused absences during the semester.
“C” average for the semester and no more than 2 excused absences during the semester.
If a student meets the specified requirements and elects to be exempt from a course exam, then his/her second semester course grade will be determined by averaging the 3rd and 4th nine week grades.
To be considered for the exam exemption:
All absences must be excused. Independent study days and school related absences (i.e. – school field trips, academic or athletic absences excused by the Hoover Athletic Office) are the only absence types not counted towards the total number of student absences. All other excused absences during the second semester will be counted towards this incentive plan.
Every 3 tardies to a class count as 1 absence from that class.
A student will be required to take the second semester course exam if any of the following occur:
has a “D” or “F” average for the semester
 - has an unexcused absence during the semester (regardless of course grade)
- is suspended during the second semester
 - is assigned to ISI during the second semester
- exceed the number of excused absences allotted for your course grade
- Please remember, doctor appointments, college visits, and other excused absences count towards your total.
With approximately one week remaining in the school year, teachers will notify students of their standing in regards to grades and attendance. This is to serve as a benchmark, so seniors are aware of their possible exemption. Final determination will be based on grades and attendance up to and including the final day of the 4th nine weeks.
If a student who is exempt from an exam elects to take the exam in an attempt to improve his/her overall course grade, he/she may, but the exam grade will be incorporated into the final course grade regardless of whether or not the exam grade meets the student’s expectations.

Take Back Drug Week
In conjunction with Red Ribbon Week (October 22-October 26), we want to make our
community aware of another initiative, Take Back Drug Week. In cooperation with North Canton
Police Department, our district would like you to know that there is an official drop off box
located at the North Canton City Hall 145 N. Main St., (Enter parking lot off Ream Ave. NW for
entrance to City Hall/ Police Department) North Canton, Ohio 44720. During this week, please
take the time to dispose of your expired and unused prescription and over-the-counter (OTC)
medications and properly dispose of them at the drop-off box. The drop off box is accessible
(24/7) and is located inside the back door of city hall and the police department. Any
medications can be dropped off except liquids. This is the only exception.
Research shows that early experimentation and abuse often happens with medications that are
available in your own home. Please use this week as an opportunity to have conversations with
your children and limit accessibility by disposing unused medications. North Canton School
District wants to work with all our parents to keep our students healthy, safe and drug-free!
