Please find the schedule for final exams HERE.

After a student in grade 11 or grade 12 takes an AP or IB exam, they are no longer required to attend any remaining scheduled classes for that course in which they tested. Grade 11 and grade 12 students who do not take the AP or IB exam in their course must continue to attend scheduled classes and take a course final exam (see final exams schedule, above), as will all grade 9 and grade 10 students, regardless of whether they take their AP or IB exam. Earning honors-weight credit for that course is contingent on completion of a final exam. All students who are taking an AP or IB exam will be excused from the rest of their classes on the day of their exam. Students who are not testing must attend all their class that day. 

This year, Denver Public Schools is requiring all students to return their DPS-issued Chromebooks and chargers at the end of the 2023-2024 school year. Chromebooks must be be clean upon return (e.g., stickers removed). Chromebooks that are not returned by the end of the school year will be locked and/or reported missing by DPS, and a Chromebook and/or charger fee will be added to student’s MySchoolBucks accounts for payment. Chromebook and charger return dates will be:
  • Wednesday, May 29 from 1:55 to 3:00pm
  • Thursday, May 30 from 11:40am to 12:25pm
  • Friday, May 31 from 11:40am to 12:25pm
Students, please work with your teachers to be sure you have your Chromebook for any final exams that require a Chromebook, and plan to return your Chromebook on the date that fits your final exam schedule.  Seniors, if you wish to retain the contents of your Google Drive, please use the Google Takeout function before you return your Chromebook at Senior Checkout on Thursday, May 16. Instructions are HERE.
