BRIEF: Online through spring

Los Angeles Community College District Chancellor Francisco Rodriguez announced that the winter session and spring semester will be primarily online.

Rodriguez wrote that the district remains in a declared public health emergency at the local, state and national level.

“Given the current health orders, safety protocols, and health restrictions, our best health experts agree that we are still far from a full recovery without a vaccine or responsive therapeutics,” Rodriguez wrote.

Rodriguez said they will continue to work with the LA County Department of Public Health to provide limited access, on-campus instruction for classes that support the Essential Infrastructure Workforce.

He said classes that can continue to be taught online will remain under that format for both terms.

In a follow-up announcement, Rodriguez wrote that the safety of students, faculty and staff must be their top priority.

“We know this is disappointing news for many, but, as conditions improve, we are also hopeful that we will see a return to some additional on-campus activities in the Spring 2021 term,” Rodriguez said.
