Class participation is expected and is a part of the final grade. Students are expected to attend all classes and be on time. Attendance will be taken each class meeting. Classes missed for legitimate reasons and with PRIOR NOTIFICATION may be excusable. Absences will be reflected in the participation grade and the final grade. Two (one for Friday or Saturday session) unexcused or four (two for Friday or Saturday session) excused absences will be reported to the Park College Office, as required. Absences in excess of these guidelines will result in a grade of “F.”
If for some reason a student must be absence for a class when a quiz or presentation is scheduled, the student MUST notify the instructor DIRECTLY and receive APPROVAL from the Instructor PRIOR to the scheduled class session, otherwise the student will not be allowed to make up the quiz or presentation and will receive a zero for the quiz or presentation.
