Distance Education Handbook
The LPC Academic Senate has approved the following language on dropping DE students:
"The instructor may drop students who miss the first meeting of a course. The first meeting of online or hybrid Distance Education courses is the first day of the class as specified in the class schedule listing. For these courses, instructors may drop students who do not log into their Canvas course and/or complete indicated activities by the third day of classes. DE instructors may drop students if they have not submitted work and/or accessed the class for two consecutive weeks. For Summer courses, DE instructors may drop students if they have not submitted work and/or accessed the class for one week."
If you mistakenly drop a student, or if a student drops but is subsequently re-enrolled for whatever reason, the student's work will reappear in the Canvas gradebook once the enrollment process from Banner to Canvas is complete.
