Monday, December 9, 2013

STEPHENVILLE, Texas—In light of closings and late openings due to the weather, Dr. Dwayne Snider, associate vice president for academic affairs, has issued the following statement:

“Instructors will be charged with coordinating with each department to reschedule such final exam slots for each section. Academic affairs will be asking that this be coordinated at the departmental level and for instructors to use communication methods to get the information to students in the section. However, this does not remove the responsibility for students to be checking on the rescheduled slots. Please do not call before mid-afternoon Monday, Dec. 9, as departments and instructors need time to make plans, but if you have not heard this afternoon about the rescheduled time for a final exam slot missed because of weather closing, please contact the instructor. If she/he is not available, then check with the department office.

“Academic affairs wishes to provide flexibility for instructors to choose alternative formats or rescheduling decisions for each section, but has offered the following guidelines for instructors and departments to consider and to choose if an acceptable alternative is not found.

“Typically, final exam slots missed on Friday, Dec. 6, have been scheduled at the same time slot on Friday, Dec. 13. Typically, the final exam slot missed from 8-10:30 a.m. on Monday, Dec. 9, has been scheduled for Friday evening, Dec. 13, from 6:30-9 p.m. 

“Instructors and departments are searching for appropriate times to reschedule Saturday final exam slots.”
