Storm Day Procedures for Jan exams
STORM DAY PROCEDURES FOR EXAMINATIONS
Please carefully review the following examination procedures:
Schools must follow the examination schedule set by the Halifax Regional Centre for Education and published in the 2020-2021 School Calendar.
HRCE high schools are instructed to handle school closures in the following manner:
If a high school is closed during a scheduled exam day, the exam schedule is adjusted by advancing it one day for each missed exam day.
Example: If there is a school cancellation on Monday, January 25
All Monday’s exams move to Tuesday, January 26
All Tuesday’s exams move to Wednesday, January 27
All Wednesday’s exams move to Thursday, January 28 and
All Thursday’s exams move to Friday, January 29
If there is a delayed opening, the morning exam will be re-scheduled (to a make-up block) and the afternoon exam will proceed as scheduled.
January 29 is currently a scheduled Assessment & Evaluation Day for high schools. If the exam schedule is advanced by one day, the Assessment & Evaluation Day would move to February 1. In addition, the start of Semester Two would move ahead one day to February 2.
