Did You Know?

Students with health impairments often require flexible attendance requirements.

Students who have chronic health conditions such as Asthma, Diabetes, Lupus or AIDS may lack the stamina to participate in long classes or to attend school full-time. Allowing flexible attendance, distance learning through audiotaped and/or videotaped lectures, and Web-based or e-mail assignments can assist students in keeping up with coursework.
