Portland Community College Diesel Technology
This attendance policy is a department policy and is implemented into all Diesel Service Technology program classes. The department instructors believe this to be important to provide consistency among the different classes and instructors.
Reliability is a growing concern of the local Diesel Technician employers. If technicians come late, leave early and consistently miss workdays, the most mechanically skilled are not productive and will not maintain an advancing career. This attendance policy simulates what is expected by our industry and will help in preparing students to enter the workforce as reliable employees.
1. For each three days missed per six week module, the earned
module letter grade will be lowered by one letter.
2. Late to class two times is equal to one missed day.
3. Leaving early is equal to coming late and will count
Note: When special circumstances arise, the instructor may allow the student to make up missed time after hours or by completing additional course-work on the student's own time. Examples of special circumstances may include but are not limited to family illnesses or death, jury duty and National Guard duty. If you foresee special circumstances arising, see your instructor before the days are missed to see if arrangements can be made to make up your time.
