COVID-19 behavior rubric

We have also implemented a COVID-19 Behavior Rubric. The purpose of the COVID-19 Behavior Rubric is to inform students of the consequences that will be issued for violations of the Student Health Agreement, which each student returning to in-person instruction was required to sign. If a student engages in behavior that is inconsistent with the Student Health Agreement, the sanctions described in the COVID-19 Behavior Rubric will be utilized to hold the student accountable.
