The problem we wish to solve and prevent before it ever occurs is the administration of final exams in the second semester of the 2020-21 school year. This is a potential problem for students as they have remained in a hybrid learning system, with a long period of remote learning, and have not had the proper opportunity to grasp information and learn concepts throughout the progression of the school year when compared to previous students. With the change to a full in-person system after March, students will be forced into 5- day in-person learning to the end of their second semester with little to no preparation after a year spent at home without being present in a normal learning environment. After this long time spent adapting to this new method of learning, forcing students to revert to their original schedules in a matter of weeks is asking quite a lot from them. This will cause issues and result in a drop in grades across the board but this can be combated and overcome. However, combined with the addition of finals, standardized testing, and AP exams students will be placed under tremendous amounts of stress and will lead many of them to fear their grades dropping. Removing finals will allow students to focus on learning information and content covered in classes and will give them time to readjust to 5-day in-person classes, rather than cramming information and not understanding anything.
