CCCCAA UPDATES

 

CCCAA COVID-19 Working Group Guiding Principles

Recommendations as of June 4, 2020 

Important Dates:
Fall Schedule Posting - June 15, 2020
Fall Priority Registration - July 6, 2020

Important Notice from the Chancellor's Office:

Dear Colleagues,

We are writing to provide some preliminary information on the fall 2020 schedule. 

It is clear that due to requirements for physical and social distancing, there will be no face-to-face only sections offered.  Hence, all lecture classes will be offered online. 

Courses in the CTE, STEM, and Arts areas with practicum, lab, or performance components that can comply with requirements of physical and social distancing will be offered in a hybrid modality with permission from the county.

In the next two weeks, we will provide more details as we learn more about the situation in our county and state.

At this time, please do not change any attendance accounting methods in the fall 2020 schedule as we are developing our emergency blanket distance education addenda that allow us the flexibility to offer our courses in an online/hybrid mode.

Fall schedule posting will occur on June 15 and priority registration will begin on July 6.

Thank you for your patience, perseverance, and dedication to our students and community.  Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Wolde-Ab Isaac, RCCD Chancellor
Susan Mills, Vice Chancellor, Educational Services and Strategic Planning
