My policy as well. And one that I think is very fair. I tell them it's okay
to get behind but it's your reponsiblity to get it done. I also explain that
they have many opportunities to come in and work during school, before and
   Stacie, This is really all you should be expected to do. After this it's
really their decision. They take zeroes, it's a lesson hopefully learned.
