Section A: Excused Absences/Make-up Participation Points

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:2
Additional details or exceptions to allotment: 2 (3 max in case of illness) is the maximum number of excused absences even for students with accommodation requests, given that we meet weekly and it's extremely difficult to make up a 3-hour class. Please try to come to class.
Plan for make-up participation points, if applicable (e.g. .submit additional blog posts on Canvas):student will submit more substantive Reading Responses and responses to peer writing assignments on Canvas
Please explain why absences beyond the number allowed in the syllabus is not a reasonable accommodation.
