Attendance Policy
Classwork is project-based and each session’s work will build upon work done in the previous class session. Therefore, it is critical that you attend class regularly to be a full partner in this enhanced learning environment. Excellent attendance will be rewarded! If you miss 3 or fewer classes your final grade for this course will be increased by 5%.

It is each student’s responsibility to personally contact the instructor in advance if a class is going to be missed, regarding missed assignments. It is especially important not to attend class if you are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms (see COVID-19 Instructions below). When contacting the instructor please specify the symptoms you are experiencing.

Students are encouraged to contact the instructor if in the case he/she is not achieving their intended level of success. There may be several avenues open to the student to receive additional assistance (such as tutoring) to gain a better understanding of the course materials.

Students who need to withdraw must complete an official form and submit it consistent with college policy.
Incomplete grades are given only when an emergency prevents the student from completing a minor portion of the assignments of this course.

Late Work, Plagiarism
All students are expected to complete their own work by scheduled deadlines. While group work is encouraged, all assignments will be analyzed to ensure they are unique and individually created. In the case that plagiarism or cheating occurs, all involved students will receive 0 points for the project or assignment.

Students who are unable to complete an assignment by the assigned due date will not receive full points for that assignment. For each day an assignment is late there will be a 5% reduction in the assignment’s overall grade. If you will not be able to complete an assignment by the assigned due date and have a valid excuse, the instructor reserves the right to extend the due date at his discretion.

Grading
Your final grade in this course will be based on the following:
• Assignments: 25%
• Projects: 75%

Spokane Falls Community College grading scale will be used, which is as follows:
• A = 4.0
• B = 3.1
• C = 2.2
• D = 1.2
• F = 0.0

In order to receive a grade for the course, all projects and exercises must be completed and received by the instructor by the end of the quarter.

Other Policies:

COVID-19 Instructions
SFCC is committed to the health and safety of students, faculty and staff and to maintaining a safe environment that complies with health and safety regulations. Wearing a mask is an individual choice. If you experience symptoms of COVID-19 or another contagious illness, please communicate with your instructor and take precautions, including testing when you feel sick or have been exposed, staying home when appropriate, and getting treatment as needed. It is no longer required to report student cases of COVID-19, but we ask that you follow CDC guidelines: 1) isolate for at least 5 days after symptoms first appear, 2) return after 5 days if symptoms are improving and if you have not had a fever for 24 hours without the use of medication, and 3) wear a mask around others for 5 additional days upon your return.

Students with Disabilities
In the event of a student with a disability requiring accommodations, please notify the instructor or contact Disability Support Services directly (533-4155). This information will be kept confidential.

Student Holidays for Reasons of Faith or Conscience (SSB 5173)
SCC/SFCC students are entitled to two days of excused absences per academic year for reasons of faith or conscience or for organized activities conducted under the auspices of a religious organization. Students’ grades will not be adversely impacted by authorized absences under this policy, although students in courses with required community clinical and /or practicum experiences must fulfill these requirements to meet the licensure requirements of the program. All absences under this policy must be submitted to the Chief Academic Officer in writing at least two weeks prior to the desired absence, containing a precise explanation of how the requested holiday is related to a reason of faith, conscience, or an organized activity conducted by a religious organization. If deemed in alignment with the policy, the student will receive a document with the date(s) of the approved absences (which must be full days). The student is solely responsible for ensuring the documentation authorizing the absence is provided to each of the instructors whose classes or assignments are affected by the absence. The instructor(s) will determine, within two days after receiving the notification, what adjustments, if any, will need to be made for the student to make up assignments or tests missed during the absence(s), and the instructor may require that the student submit the assignment or take the test before or after the regularly scheduled date. If the student fails to notify the instructor of an authorized absence under this policy, the instructor is not obligated to make accommodations.
