How you know a Corps Member of Concern (CMC) is in your seminar ▪ Check your roster and if any of the names are highlighted in a red, that means you have a CMC in your seminar that’s on probation. If a name is highlighted in yellow the CM is on our “watch list (light yellow)”. ▪ There are also reason codes for being a CMC in the first column. ▪ The various reasons a CM is classified a CMC are: (Field Scores (F), Attendance in Seminar (A) and/or portfolio(module) assignment grades (P). ▪ Seminar instruction pay is not affected by having a CMC. ▪ We communicate this information to you so that you know if a CM struggled with their attendance or portfolio(modules) last year. If you start noticing repeated struggles, please communicate with us. It’s important to also communicate when any CM isn’t attending class or turning in their modules. This column shows CMC status and reason codes. It also shows CMCs on the Watch List. Red color indicates CMCs on probation
