Below is what we use at Wesley College.  I shared more than just our
attendance policy.  :)
Hopefully the formatting didn't mess up the information too much.

Student Employee Expectations
As an employee, you represent the Department of Student Success and
Retention in terms of work
ethic, image, and level of professionalism while also upholding academic
integrity standards. You
are not only a student, but also a paraprofessional member of Wesley’s
programs in the Department
of Student Success and Retention. Therefore, you will be expected to adhere
to the below

As with any other job, employers expect employees to be on time, dedicated,
mature, courteous, and
active participants in the operations of the business. Being a student
employee for the Department
of Student Success and Retention is no different.

Student employees should make every effort—no matter what a day presents—to
be a paraprofessional
who respects their coworkers, supervisors, and students we serve.

Student employees are expected to maintain a high ethical level of
behavior. Speaking negatively
about instructors, students, tutees, or tutor, will not be tolerated. If
this type of unethical and
unprofessional conversations occurs, the SSR team will meet to discuss
appropriate course of
action, and outcomes will be assessed on a case- by-case basis.

Student employees are required to sign an annual confidentiality agreement.
When working with
students, you will learn personal information about them, such as grades,
telephone numbers, and
e-mail addresses. All information must remain confidential. In addition, as
per the Family
Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), anything discussed or overheard
concerning a student’s
academic record is private unless you are given written, signed permission
from the student. For more information
about FERPA, please reference the appendices in this handbook.

Students are not permitted to use substances, including but not limited to,
drugs, alcohol, and
tobacco while working.

Academic Integrity:
Any student worker who violates Wesley College’s Academic Honesty policy
will be terminated. You

so as early as possible, in case you have a session with a student and
other arrangements need to be made.

they will be absent for any reason. In addition, they must call or email
