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:4
Additional details or exceptions to allotment: This is a discussion-based course, therefore, a large part of the course is based upon attendance and participation. Accordingly, the standard excused absence listed in the syllabus is 1 (barring illness). Adjusted would be no more than 4. Any more than 4 absences (even if excused) would impact not only a student's participation but also their grasp of the course material. However, due to the pandemic and taking into consideration disability needs, I am willing to be quite flexible and work with students who have to miss class due to either an extended illness or disability-related issues.
Plan for make-up participation points, if applicable (e.g. .submit additional blog posts on Canvas):I have a variety of additional assignments listed on the syllabus that students can choose from in order to make up participation points. I accept these throughout the quarter as the need arises. The student can choose any one of this assignments to make up participation points.
Please explain why absences beyond the number allowed in the syllabus is not a reasonable accommodation.
