Auto Collision and Management Participation Policy

A student is expected to attend and participate during the scheduled period of instruction (online lecture and lab). This begins with the first scheduled class day of the term and continues to the last scheduled class day of the term. The student who chooses to consistently participate in class discussions and activities sets themselves to be highly successful. The class and lab activities are designed to develop skills necessary to thrive in the collision repair industry. Skills can only be developed by discovery, observed demonstration, time to try and time to increase neurological and muscle growth. Each student has purchased and set aside time to develop knowledge and skills to be successful in this industry. Make every effort to get everything possible from this time.

If a student happens to complete assigned objectives ahead of schedule the instructor and the lead instructor/department chair will discuss and plan activities to continue the growth of these skills. Take advantage of every opportunity to grow as a technician.  The Auto Collision Department is dedicated to developing highly trained entry level technicians with the skills and knowledge to advance at a rapid pace.

But, life happens. In these situations handle it properly. Students should call in and leave word with the instructor or someone in the office. If possible let the instructor know beforehand, so he can work with you and be better prepared to help keep you caught up. Schedule appointments outside of class time when possible. Provide documentation of the events when possible so that accurate records are kept and integrity is never questioned. Make sure to take responsibility of any make up work and adjust lab work to meet project deadlines. Always be honest and straight forward. When life happens, work through it.

Daily, Weekly, Assignments and Participation Grades:
 
A class participation grade will be taken each and every class day. The quiz or assignment will be the participation grade if given. Otherwise, 25 will be given for attending and being on time. A 12.5 will be given if you are tardy. An unexcused absence will earn a grade of “ZERO”. The Midterm and Final Exams will include the participation grade for those days. 25% of the exam grade will be deducted if you are tardy. A grade of “ZERO” will be earned if you have an unexcused absence.

Tardiness

When a student arrives or leaves after participation record (role) has been taken it becomes the student’s responsibility to alert the instructor of his/her arrival or departure and confirm that the proper update has been made in the student participation record. If the instructor fails to document the arrival or departure it is the student’s fault. This has to be this way especially in the lab environment because the instructor does not keep his participation record on his person at all times. 

Leaving the lab early without proper notice could become a safety issue and needs to be taken very seriously. In an emergency situation each student must be accounted for. 

Please, out of respect for first responders, instructors and classmates who may go back into a dangerous situation to get you out, let the instructor know when you leave.

A student is considered tardy up to 15 minutes into the scheduled lab, and thereafter will be considered a non-participant for that period of instruction.

Any earned non-participation time will be recorded, tallied and included in the 10% non-participation policy.

Each Tardy will be 1% addition of non-participation to the non-participation policy.

Late Work/Test Policies
 
All students are required to be present for class. However, unexpected circumstances will occur. If a student has an excused absence, death or illness in the immediate family, the student must notify the instructor of record immediately. If a test is missed, the instructor has to give permission for makeup. The missed test must be made up before the next scheduled period of instruction.
 
An excused absence only allows for makeup of missed assignments or test. The absence is recorded. Excused absences are determined by the instructor.
 
Assignments are due at the beginning of class of the set due date. Late assignments will not be accepted and a grade of “zero” will be earned for said assignment. Students who prior contacted the instructor may be considered excused.
 
I-CAR Assignments: I-CAR Assignments are due the week following the date assigned. Each I-CAR Assignment completed after the required completion date and time will be deducted 10% off of the final score for the assignment for each week it is late. Failure to complete the assignment within the first 3 weeks of the assigned date will result in a 0 as the final grade for that assignment. If the instructor is contacted PRIOR to an absence, the instructor may take the absence into account and issue an extension on the assignment. 
Pop Tests
 
Can be given at any time by the instructor and are not make up items.
Exemptions
 
Students can be exempted from a final exam if:
A.    Online lecture average is 90 or above
B.    Attendance is perfect
C.    Assignments are completed and turned in

 

Cell Phone Policy
 
Cell phones may be brought into the classroom or lab. However, they must be in the off or vibrate setting.
 
As instructors, we understand that cell phones can be used in an educational manner which is considered appropriate for this class. The instructor reserves the right to determine if cell phone usage is appropriate for the classroom or lab setting at any given time.
 
Anyone failing to adhere to this policy will be dismissed from class and issued a non-participation grade (absence) for that period of instruction.
Departmental Cleanup Policy
 
Each student is expected to participate in the cleanup activities once the date has been identified.

Students with unexpected circumstances can be excused by the department chair only.
