The following was presented and discussed at Learning Council Friday, May 9th, and also at Faculty Council the same afternoon.
Motivation: Compliance with DOEd and Financial Aid. The Federal standard requires students to attend once during the first week. “attend once” = “participate in one educational activity”
Current COPPS language: “Students who do not attend 50 percent of the class sessions by the end of the first week may be administratively withdrawn.”
Proposed change to COPPS: Will be administratively dropped
Possible new wording also being considered: Students must attend at least one of the first two meetings of a class during the first week. Students who do not attend one of the first two meetings of a class in the first week will be administratively withdrawn.
