In order for the College to continue hosting Staff Development Workshops, we have adjusted our policy as it relates to no-shows and last minute cancellations. Certain courses have a minimum requirement of participants (12 people) in order for the class to be held, such as courses that utilize computers for training. Unfortunately, we continue to have a number of people who either do not show up or cancel at the last minute. When this happens we are unsuccessful in finding a substitute.
We will continue our practice of not charging units for the staff development opportunities in which their staff attend. However, we will charge departments a pro-rated fee if they are unsuccessful in finding a substitute participant.
