Absences from Class Policy

 

If you cannot conduct class on a given day (whether due to illness or a prearranged trip out of town for a legitimate reason, such as attending a conference), you must notify your Division Director in advance. It is not sufficient to make private arrangements with a colleague to cover the classes. In cases where longer notice is not possible (as in the case of illness that comes on overnight), you may report your unavailability to teach by leaving a detailed message with the department staff at 773-508-7510 and with your Division Director. We will make every effort to see to it that your students are alerted, and, if appropriate, notified of the work they should begin during your absence.

 

Absences from Applied Music Lessons Policy

If you are going to miss more than two weeks of lessons during the semester, you must notify the Chairperson of the department, the Director of Music and the Director of Applied Music before semester begins. It is not sufficient to make private arrangements with a colleague to cover the classes and bringing a substitute instructor from outside requires an approval from the Director of Music. In case where longer notice is not possible (as in the case of illness that comes on overnight), you may report your unavailability to teach by leaving a detailed message with the department staff at 773-508-7510. You should also try to use Blackboard to notify your students.
