All out of school students need to report to the SSHS campus library and must bring a picture ID with them in order to register and/or take the exit level test. Testers are asked to arrive no later than 7:50 a.m. on the date of the test. All tests will begin at 8 a.m.

The student can earn credit for the course if that student successfully attend the EOC review summer school course and passes the EOC test in July. EOC retests will be administered July 8-19.
