When it is clear under obtaining circumstances that the official / employee has established a PATTERN /SCHEME to circumvent the rule by incurring substantial absences although LESS than 30 working days 3 X a semester, such pattern is already apparent, dropping from the rolls WITHOUT NOTICE may likewise be justified.
