Summer term going online

Classes for summer term 2020 at Clackamas Community College will be held online where possible. In an email to CCC staff, college president Tim Cook stated, “On April 7, Gov. Brown announced an extension to her higher education provision. The new executive order directs us to teach online through June 13 and limit on-campus operations to critical employees through the end of the 2020-21 academic year. This means our buildings will remain closed to the public and everyone except critical employees will remain working from home through spring term … In light of this news and the likelihood of another extension, we have decided to continue our online learning through summer term. This means all courses where possible will be held online, similar to spring term. As of now, all events on our campuses are canceled for summer term, and the status of community education has yet to be determined.” On CCC’s website, Tim Cook continues, “While this is not the news we were hoping to hear, I know that it is for the good of our community. This is a stressful time for all of us and the uncertainty of when we can resume classes in person may be causing additional anxiety. Please know that our student services are still here for you. Whether you need help with advising, would like to talk with a counselor, or need tutoring assistance, those resources are all available remotely.” For more information regarding CCC’s Covid-19 response and available resources, visit clackamas.edu/coronavirus.
