5.15. Start of Classes

TAs should contact the instructor they are working with *prior* to the start of classes. In the past we have had problems with TAs not being available until the first day of classes (or later!). As a general rule TAs should be on campus a week before the start of classes, or should get explicit prior permission from the course instructor that they can arrive after that. Note that due to the problems late arrivals have caused, the department might need to institute penalties for TAs who arrive late.
