Karen Wozniak started this petition to USC ACCT 324 Students

Our attendance points were not granted to us solely because Mr. Byars left remaining attendance records in his school office which he now has no access to.

Why should we, hardworking students, pay this price after doing absolutely nothing wrong?

 

On April 27th, Mr. Byars declared in his lecture his current plan to be to give points to everyone across the board regardless of their attendance record. What a great idea! This component of his promises has since been retracted, leaving students who depended on the extra points to improve their grade in a very difficult spot. 

We as students, are being punished in this situation, and no one benefits.

 

Mr. Byars should reconsider his decision not to give attendance points and provide some means for us to earn them if not for attendance.

 

A comment from another fellow student:

"I think Mr. Byars also mentioned in a lecture that in a contract, even one formed orally, terms of the contract may be changed if unforeseen circumstances cause either party to be unable to keep their agreed on promise/considerations. 

I believe Mr. Byars is still able to maintain his promise: compensation/gift of 2 points, but the students who accepted this unilateral contract from Byars by performance (required/requested attendance) were eventually barred from doing so due to unforeseen circumstances. 


Perhaps this means we have a right to compensation/gifting of these 2 points based on attendance for the in-class segment of the course or a substitute action!? 


After all, we, as extra-credit interested students, made our promise and were part way through completing our consideration actions for this contract when classes were suddenly moved online without our input in the decision..."
