Lewiston, ME (PRWEB) December 2, 2004
The North Atlantic Regional High School in Maine has released a new web site guiding Florida high school seniors around the consequences of failing the FCAT exit exams. Maine has no required exit exam.
The administrator of the school, Steve Moitozo, says, ÂWhen Exit Exams are used against the student, that is unfair. A student may have done everything required to graduate (perfect attendance, passed every course, done all the homework, have a passing GPA, earned all the credits, etc.), but if that same student cannot pass EVERY section of this one massive test, the student is denied a high school diploma. That is not fair, but it is the law in over 25 states.Â
But it is NOT the law in Maine. MoitozoÂs high school in Maine is a state-authorized, fully accredited private school. Recently high school seniors victimized by high school exit exams have found this Maine high school, transferred their credits, and earned their diplomas. High School students own their credits -- all credits belong to the student -- and if the student wants to transfer the credits to a high school in Maine, they are free to do so. When the student has the necessary 17.5 credits, they are entitled to their high school diploma.
