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:3
Additional details or exceptions to allotment: Most learning happens during class discussions and the participation grade is usually affected negatively after more than one absence. I can increase this to 3 excused absences, but inability to attend more than three classes will make it exceedingly difficult to excel in the course.
Plan for make-up participation points, if applicable (e.g. .submit additional blog posts on Canvas):The student may meet with me in office hours to partially make up for some absences, within reasonable limits.
Please explain why absences beyond the number allowed in the syllabus is not a reasonable accommodation.
