Here is a step-by-step explanation of how to handle issues with students.

Attendance

  1. Make sure you’re tracking attendance for each class, always check your roster in MyCampus, and try to contact the student. CLICK HERE for instructions on checking your roster.
  2. File an Early Alert through MyCampus as soon as a student is showing a trend of missing class. CLICK HERE for instructions on how to do so.
  3. If the problem persists, you may issue a “WE Warning.” CLICK HERE for instructions on filing this form.
  4. How do I know if a student has withdrawn from my class? CLICK HERE for instructions on checking your roster; if the student has a grade of "W," then he or she has withdrawn from the class.

Academic Performance

  1. If a student is struggling in class, you may refer the student directly to The Learning Center (TLC) in the El Dorado Conference and Student Center if extra help is needed, such as incomplete homework or failed tests.

  2. File an Early Alert through MyCampus if you are unable to contact students and cannot refer them for tutoring. CLICK HERE for instructions on how to do so.
