The Faculty Association would like to pursue the revision of the current CFCC global attendance policy (20% absence policy) to a policy that leaves the attendance policy in all CFCC courses up to the discretion of the individual instructor of the course. Such a policy would require that each instructor clearly state their policy on each of the syllabi/first day handouts of each of there classes and record the attendance of each student for the first 10% of course meetings.
Progress on the pursuit of such a policy will be documented on this page and meetings had already begun on this matter in the Spring of 2013. Updates will come soon.
The chairs and deans support the attendance change and the proposal will now go to the Student Services Committee and then to College Council.
