  Case: Always late
For the third time, a Jeremy arrives to your classroom late (he is in a wheelchair). Your syllabus specifies a reduction in points for repeated tardiness. You feel bad because you do not know if the reason he is late is because of the wheelchair and you don't want to discriminate him just because he is disabled. What should your course of action be?
Solution: (Rates are posted for this solution!)
Talk to the student and see what the problem is. If the student is coming from another class and does not have enough time then the teacher may accept his tardiness. If the student does not have an acceptable reason then the teacher needs to speak to the student about a plan to make it to class on time.

Comments: I like this solution. If the student is late because they do not have enough time to get from class to class then it would be a great idea to ask the teacher he had previously to allow the student to leave a few minutes early due to the circumstances.
