Poor attendance is a leading reason for termination from a job in all areas of employment. With this factor in mind, the instructor monitors student attendance daily. In addition, attendance on a regular basis is necessary for proper skill development.
Tardiness is not acceptable.
The instructor reserves the right to drop any student missing more than two weeks of class (6 MWF classes, 4 TR classes).
Class work and quizzes may be given at the beginning of the class period. Students coming in to class late will not be allowed to make up class work or quizzes already turned in. A grade of zero will be recorded for the class work or quiz.
