North Central State College is taking a serious and considered start to the new year.
That was made clear in a letter sent to the NCSC Community this past week by President &CEO Dorey Diab. Diab shared the basic plan for restarting classes after the first of the year:
“Starting January 11, we will begin the semester totally online for the first week. All classes will meet online for that first week, and no in-person, on-campus classes will be held until Tuesday, January 19th. Staff will also work remotely until Tuesday, January 19th. Students scheduled for off campus clinical/practicum/fieldwork courses should verify assignments with their faculty.”
The purpose of this type of start, Diab shared, is to minimize the chance that COVID-19 exposure during holiday activities will spread on campus.
NCSC was a pacesetter in moving to off-campus instruction when the pandemic hit in March. Since that time, classes have been in-person, online, or a combination of the two.
