Andrew Deemer started this petition to the school board

The administration created a new schedule for finals week that has students taking three finals on December 15, three finals on December 16, and two finals on December 17. This differs from the original schedule for finals week that Cathedral has followed in previous years where we have had 2 finals a day over a 4 day span. This new schedule approved by the administration puts a hefty amount of stress on students to study for an additional final the night before. In order to accommodate a third final, everyone has to eat lunch at Cathedral at the same time. This will cause students to feel pressured and rushed to eat when they already have an additional final to worry about and study for. Instead of having a 3.5-4 hour day, students will have a 5.5 hour day which will make them feel more drained from finals. Cathedral did not have finals in the spring or fall of 2020 because of the coronavirus and e-learning. When we were finally in person for finals in the spring of 2021, the administration stated that finals would not count for more than 10% of a students grade in any class, and many teachers assigned a final project instead of a test. Teachers are starting to lean back towards tests for finals, and they can count for up to 20% of a student’s overall grade. The administration ultimately needs to consider the concerns of students and alter the final schedule in order for students to be more prepared physically and mentally in order for them to succeed as they prepare, study, and take their finals.
