Attendance and make up work:
It is the policy of F.T.C. that punctual attendance at all scheduled classes, labs and kitchens is regarded as integral to all courses and is expected of all students. Each F.T.C. instructor will include his or her attendance guidelines in each course syllabus. Students will be responsible for knowing and adhering to these guidelines. The student is expected to be in class on time. Tardiness will result in a reduction (or loss) of the day’s grade. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain class materials missed due to absences. Instructors are not obliged to repeat a lab of other in-class experiences missed by the absent student. Students should be aware that the quality of learning experience may suffer as a result of absence and/or chronic lateness.
Attendance is very important in maintaining the maximum level of learning. As we often serve as a reference for jobs and post secondary schools, I am often asked about student’s attendance. For this reason, we strongly encourage good attendance and responsibility during absences. Students are expected to make up all missed assignments. To receive credit, a student must ask the instructor for missed assignments on his/her FIRST day back. A reasonable time frame will be set for turning this work in. Announced tests will be taken on the day of return, or may be taken in advance, if planned ahead.
