Using the Attendance and Flexibility Consideration Rubric, I have determined that:a student with a disability may miss class for disability-related reasons beyond the number of allowed absences on the syllabus. Additional information is required.
The maximum number of excused absences without penalty permitted:
Additional details or exceptions to allotment: Because learning in this course takes place entirely through in-class discussions of the assigned readings, I typically require students to withdraw from the course upon their fifth absence. It simply becomes impossible for a student to succeed on the major course requirements once they have missed that much instruction. As an accommodation, I will impose a penalty for the fifth absence and only require a withdrawal upon the sixth absence.
Plan for make-up participation points, if applicable (e.g. .submit additional blog posts on Canvas):
