Weekly Compliance Report: September 7 to 17
Warnings about staying current with their tests and attestations get students’ attention
A few weeks into classes, Boston University’s Dean of Students office says one thing is clear about student behavior during these COVID-19 times: when they mess up, one warning is often ignored, a second warning helps, but the third warning gets action. Maybe that’s not surprising, as a student’s ID could be deactivated after that final warning.
From Monday to Thursday this week, 7,685 warning letters went out to students for not staying current with their daily attestation (that total includes students receiving multiple warnings) and another 307 warnings went out for students not staying current with their testing (also including multiple warnings). Warnings about mask violations (3) and social distancing (2) were low, but 19 warnings were issued regarding improper off-campus gatherings.
“As expected, we are seeing a downward trend in the numbers now that students have established a routine and have accurately indicated their LfA [Learn from Anywhere] status,” says Jason Campbell-Foster, senior associate dean of students. “It also seems that the third and final warning is very effective at encouraging students to complete outstanding requirements.”
