COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) Information

UPDATE: mAY 11, 2020

With so much uncertainty regarding when and how we will be able to return to normal operations, SJECCD has determined that our best course of action is to maintain remote instruction and services through the fall term. This extends our existing operational changes through December 17, 2020, which is the end of fall term.

The decision was made after consulting with district leadership and taking into account data and reports from public health experts. If guidance from local, state, and federal public health departments indicates that we can resume in-person operations, we will be able to transition back while the term is underway, but as of right now, we must plan for the fall 2020 term to begin in the same remote environment we are currently experiencing.

The safety of our students, employees, and the broader community remains our highest priority and we will continue to monitor the situation closely and follow guidance and recommendations from local and state authorities. We hope to return to many of our in-person operations by the close of fall term, but are prepared to continue to offer online instruction and services as long as necessary to support the health and safety of our community.

To reiterate: if public health departments determine that it is safe to return to in-person operations before this date, we will begin to transition back to in-person instruction and services prior to the end of the term, but we must be prepared to continue remote operations for the entirety of the term.

Below is a bulleted list of our operational changes:

All District and campus facilities are currently closed to students, employees, and members of the public (exceptions for employees providing essential services will be considered on a case-by-case basis).
SJCC and EVC have converted most classes to remote instruction through Canvas, ConferZoom, and other modalities.
SJECCD has transitioned employees to work remotely. Most faculty, administration, and operational personnel began working remotely on March 17, 2020. This change will remain in effect though the end of fall term on December 17, 2020. The anticipated date of return for students and the members of the public to campus is the first day of the winter intersession term on Monday, January 4, 2021. However, these dates may change as the COVID-19 health crisis evolves.
The 2020 SJCC and EVC Commencement Ceremonies will not take place as in-person gatherings. More information on alternative ceremonies will be forthcoming. 
SJECCD Board of Trustees meetings will be held remotely and may be viewed via Zoom until further notice. Details will be provided via the normal Board Meeting notification process.
