Attendance Policy Participant attendance is mandatory at all monthly program sessions. Employers are notified of any absence occurring during the program year. Participants are expected to be prompt in their arrival and to remain throughout the program day. Applicants acknowledge their understanding of the attendance policy when they sign the participant commitment section of the application. If a personal emergency arises that will affect participation, the class member should notify Ashley Earnest as soon as possible. At the discretion of the Leadership Springfield Advisory Board, missed sessions could result in a participant being dropped from the program. No portion of the tuition will be refunded if a participant is dropped due to attendance. Participants who miss less than the equivalent of one program session (9 hours total) will be eligible to graduate with their class and will receive the Leadership Springfield certificate of completion. Participants who miss more than one program session (9 hours total) will not meet graduation conditions and will not be eligible to graduate with their class. However, monthly program sessions can be made-up the following program year enabling the participant to earn their certificate of completion at the following year’s graduation ceremony.
