Under the direction of President Dr. David Campbell, the NACC Planning Committee has developed a thorough Plan of Operation for the Fall 2020 semester with the safety of NACC students, faculty, and staff being at the forefront of this decision.
Highlights of this plan are as follows:
All theory and lecture classes will be offered online, very similarly to what we have done this summer. A few career-tech labs and clinicals will be offered on campus and will strictly follow CDC COVID-19 prevention guidelines. These classes must complete on-campus instruction before Thanksgiving and be finished remotely by the instructor(s). (Health officials are anticipating another surge in COVID-19 after Thanksgiving.)
Any events or activities on campus are strongly, strongly discouraged. Interdepartmental meetings should be held virtually.
Remote work directives are fluid at this time until the extent of COVID-19 for the fall clarifies. However, based on the Chancellor’s directive, divisional offices and support personnel should work on campus. Remote work is possible for instructors teaching online but should be confine to only a couple of days per week. It is the Chancellor's and System’s goal to get more people working back on campus.
Social distancing, wearing masks in buildings, limiting daily contact with others, strictly disinfecting buildings, and frequently washing hands will, of course, be required.
Please carefully read all of the precautions that will be in place for Fall and how they must be followed.
