Extended Time Procedures


Extended Time Accommodation

  • Students with IEPs are entitled to “extended time” meaning additional time to complete your exams after school. 

What does this mean? 

If your class is taking an exam, and you are not able to finish that period, you must tell your teacher that you need extended time. 

  • Extended time must be used the same day that the exam is given.
  • Extended time will only be available after school. 
  • Extended time will only be applicable for Math, ELA, Science, Spanish and History exams. 
  • Extended time will only take place during periods 9,10, and 11.  

           **There is no extended time before or after these periods.**

Steps to Get Extended Time ✅ 

  1. Tell your teacher you need extended time so they can set your test aside.  
  2. Notify your parents that you are staying after school to complete an exam. 
  3. After your LAST official class is over, go to the Library. Room 234  (second floor).  


  • Bring pencils, pens, paper and calculators when needed. 
  • Know the name of the teacher whose test you are completing. 
  • No talking. All exams are to be completed silently. 
  • No cheating! Cell phones and smart watches must be placed on the table face down while you are testing.
  • Extended time exams will take  precedence (is more important) over any extracurricular activities.
