Absence Report Form

Weather Advisory

The Faculty of Education follows the UBC directive for all weather advisories.

All teacher candidates should check for announcements on the UBC homepage at ubc.ca, UBC Bulletins, or Twitter @ubcnews. You can also sign up for UBC Alert on the Student Service Centre. If the University is open, classes are in session, unless you hear directly from your instructor.

If you are unable to make it to a class, complete the absence form as you normally would.

If you will be at a school site that day, check the school district website for alerts and possible closures and if necessary, complete an absence form as usual.


Upon submission of this online form, you will receive an email confirmation from the Teacher Education Office. Depending on the day of your absence, be sure to forward this information to the appropriate individuals:

If you are missing courses, please forward this email confirmation to your course instructor(s). It is also your full responsibility to inquire about and make up for any assignments missed due to this absence.

If you are missing practicum, please forward this email confirmation to your faculty advisor. You must also notify your school advisor(s) and the school administration that you will be absent well in advance of the start of the school day. You are responsible for providing adequate planning for any classes that you were scheduled to teach.
