The Attendance Flexibility and Deadline Extension Accommodation Agreement Form is used to document whether and to what extent the access need for flexibility can be accommodated in your course. This form is required as SDS engages in an interactive process to provide appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities. Your participation as the instructor and designer of the course is essential. We highly recommend that you review the Guide to Assessing Accommodation Requests for Attendance Flexibility and Deadline Extensions for Instructors (PDF) in advance of completing this form.
Please complete this form if you have received a Faculty Notification Letter from SDS on behalf of a student who requires flexibility with attendance, extended time for assignments, chronic full flexibility and/or flexibility with participation.
Important Note: This form is for completion by the course instructor, or their designee. Students should not complete this form.
Specify the length of time that the agreement will be in effect:
Section A: Excused Absences/Make-up Participation Points
Use the Attendance and Flexibility Consideration Rubric to analyze if and to what extent an attendance accommodation can be implemented for each course while maintaining essential course requirements and learning objectives.
Using the Attendance and Flexibility Consideration Rubric, I have determined that:
Example: lecture absences allowed, absences from discussion section not allowed
Example: student will submit additional blog posts on Canvas
Section B: Deadline Extensions for Assignments
Use the Deadline Extensions Consideration Rubric to analyze if a deadline extension(s) is a reasonable accommodation and for how long an extension is allowable to ensure equitable access to the student while maintaining essential course requirements. Examples of assignments include but are not limited to problem sets, lab reports, papers, and presentations.
Important Notice to Students: The consequences outlined for the class for missing the deadline applies to the adjusted deadlines for the student using this accommodation.
Using the Deadline Extensions Consideration Rubric, I have determined that:
Applicable assignments (check all that apply):
Example: homework assignments-due within 3 business days of the original due date. Lab reports-due on May 5, 2022.
Example: notice to be given before class, by email.
Proctoring of the make-up quizzes/exams (select one):
