Instructors may require attendance as a part of the grading mechanism. Attendance records are required at the Austin Peay Center at Fort Campbell and faculty are required to submit an attendance report at the end of the term. Students who are forced by circumstances beyond their control to be absent from announced tests and examinations should request approval from the instructor. At the discretion of the instructor, the student will receive the grade of "I", "F", or "FA." The grade of "I" may be changed on the basis of a late test or examination. NOTE: For web-based courses, the software gives the instructor the ability to determine the times, dates, and length of entry and other activities of all students.
A check to see whether any boys are absent without leave. House Masters conduct regular Absences within their Houses, and there is a grand formal Absence on the Fourth of June when the Head Master and a team of other Masters ‘read’ Absence in School Yard and its vicinity.
