Mid Term Exam Cancellation

LEA has spoken to Dr. Terri Breeden, Assistant Supt. of Instruction, Director of High Schools Nereida Gonzalez-Sales and Director of Middle Schools Barbara Nichols regarding the cancellation of mid term exams and member concerns we have received. The decision to cancel was made in the principals' meeting on Wed. morning (1/14) based on concerns that student academic success would be compromised due to recent delayed openings and school closings.

LEA urges school officials to make every effort in the future to alert teachers first to any such change.  In addition, no teacher's Smart Goals will be negatively impacted because of the exam cancellation. 

Monday, January 26 will remain a student holiday and a teacher planning/records day. The first day of second semester will be Tuesday, Jan. 27, and will be an "A" day.

If you have concerns relating to LCPS's decision to cancel exams, please contact your school board member.
