Note Taker Accommodation Procedures


  • In each class, the instructor should ask for a volunteer note taker. A backup note taker should be available in the event that the note taker is absent.
  • The simplest method of providing this service is for the note taker to type notes into OneNote, or a Word document (or similar), then have the note taker email the notes to the instructor, who then forwards them on to the student. 
  • Students sometimes prefer to secure their own note taker. They may ask a friend in the class, or find someone who is taking thorough notes.
  • Instructors may be asked occasionally to check the quality of the notes.
  • The note taker should not be asked to change the way he or she takes notes.
  • Students are not entitled (with very few exceptions) to notes when they are absent.
  • Instructors should contact SDS if they need suggestions for obtaining a note taker.
