3.02.18 – Policy – Human Resources Making-up Cancelled Classes

College classes that are missed or not held for any reason, including inclement weather, natural
disasters or other emergencies, should be rescheduled or the instruction should be made-up by
some other alternative. Alternatives include: extra class sessions, extended class sessions,
individual conferences or others approved by the Vice President of Instruction.

The Vice President of Instruction will schedule make-up days whenever the College is closed
beyond four (4) days/evenings due to inclement weather, natural disasters or other emergencies.
Instructors will be responsible for making-up instruction by an approved alternative for the first
four (4) days.

When illness or other personal emergency leave causes an instructor to miss class, he/she must
report this absence to the appropriate supervisor. Instruction should be made up by an approved
alternative.

Instruction made-up by an approved alternative for reasons of inclement weather, natural disasters,
or other emergencies, illness, personal emergency leave, or educational leave assignments, must
be approved by the Vice President of Instruction (or designee) and documented on the instructors’
Class Attendance Report to be turned in at the end of the term. Instruction should be made up at
a time convenient to the majority of students. No punitive action may be taken against students
who are unable to attend make up sessions for legitimate reasons.

All Continuing Education classes will be rescheduled and documented on the Class Attendance
Report. Classes should be made up when convenient to the majority of students. There are no
approved alternative methods to make up Continuing Education classes.
