A written contract between the course instructor and student will indicate the reason for the incomplete, the work that must be completed, the deadline for completing the work, and signatures of both parties. A copy of the contract will be maintained by the instructor and the student and placed in the student 's file. In order to avoid disruption of class instruction and learning for faculty and students, all students attending this course are expected to turn off all cell phones (use of vibration permitted). Only in situations of dire emergency are students expected to leave the learning environment.

It is not even necessary to have cell phones and other communication devices placed in the open classroom unless the potential for an emergency message exists. In that case, the instructor should be notified prior to the class in which the student may receive an emergency message. Even then, all due diligence should be made by the student to avoid exposing other students to the distraction of even an emergency message or the need to absence one’s self from the classroom. Frequent moving about the classroom during instruction and student presentations will be noted by the course instructor and brought to the attention of the student(s) involved.
