ADA Frequently Asked Questions
Is missing class a reasonable accommodation?
Absences are excused in accordance with your attendance policy and at your discretion. While some disabilities may affect a student's attendance and may call for some leniency in your attendance policy, students are still responsible for making up missed work in an appropriate and timely manner. If attendance is an essential element of your class, it should be reflected in your attendance policy and explained to the student at the first sign that their absences are excessive.
