What happens if I miss the weekly Book Club?
Because learning occurs primarily through engagement in class activities and discussions, regular attendance is assumed. Absences are for major illness or family emergencies only and you must communicate with program admin at email@example.com. In such instances, students are responsible for contacting admin and completing work missed due to absence. You will write a summary of the readings you missed. Students can miss no more than two meeting sessions to ensure completion of CAST. If you miss more than two meetings or are repeatedly tardy, your will be terminated from CAST and will not receive a program graduation certificate.
