Distance Learning Classrooms (DLC)
Equipment in the DLC rooms is not for student use unless it is used during a class. Students may use the DLC rooms to study in during the day (8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.) unless a class is scheduled. The policy for videotaping DLC classes is posted in each DLC.
Distance Learning Classroom Policy
1. Drinks and small snacks are allowed in the room as long as students pick up after themselves. If the rooms are not left clean this policy will no longer be in effect.
2. All students are to respect their classmates. This means that students will not talk and be disruptive during class time. Any student being disruptive will be asked to leave. If a student continues to be disruptive, that student will be dismissed from the class permanently.
3. There will be no unnecessary noises made over the intercom system. This is very disruptive to all distance learning locations and will not be tolerated.
4. If a student has concerns regarding the behavior of another student, he/she should speak to the ISU - Boise’s management assistant.
This policy was created for the best interest of our students. ISU - Boise strives to have a positive learning environment. We appreciate your cooperation in following these few simple rules.
Traditional Classrooms Schedules are posted outside each classroom door. You may use a classroom for studying, but please check the schedule outside the door for availability. Schedules subject to change without notice.
