CCC will go to Remote Delivery this fall in the interest of the health and safety of students, staff and community as well as to offer a minimum of disruption during the course of the semester.

 

 

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. - In the interest of the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff and the wider community, Coconino Community College has made the difficult decision to limit in-person contact for the fall semester.

 

We are excited to provide options designed to give a quality learning experience. The College will offer Remote Delivery courses, with only a few exceptions for in-person interaction. Students will have a choice among Videoconferencing (Zoom only), Online and Hybrid (Canvas/Zoom, plus in-person labs). The good news is that every method of delivery will include regular and meaningful interaction with faculty, but it will be through different means.

 

All three CCC sites will remain open for business purposes and for students to use the computer labs, participate in the loaner laptop program and have access Wi-Fi if they have no other way to access their education.

 

Although we heard many students want to be back with us in person, we have to keep the health and safety of everybody a priority. At CCC, our dedicated faculty members thrive on face-to-face interactions with their students. This decision pains our faculty deeply, but they understand that it is necessary at this uncertain time.

 

Additionally, because the future is so uncertain, going to Remote Delivery will keep disruption of classes to a minimum for students and faculty. We need to make certain students have a positive, uninterrupted educational experience. This decision was made after exhaustive consultation with colleagues collegewide and with input from the Coconino County Department of Health and Human Services. Please keep in mind that this is a very complex issue, and we are trying to meet the needs of many people who have a stake in the decision – students who learn best in real time, students who lack access to technology, students and employees who need to be kept safe and the community we ultimately serve. 

 

The College must do what it can to safeguard the health and safety of everybody. There is no doubt that enrollments will be affected. That cannot be our primary concern, and, despite some difficult choices in our future, we must consider the primary concern of health and safety. Please understand that during this difficult time, we must all work together to help our students, one another, our families and friends and our communities. 

 

It won’t be forever. We’ll be here to welcome students back into the classroom when it’s safe.

 

Students who have already registered for in-person classes will be contacted to discuss their options, and students may also contact their advisors to learn more. Also, CCC has put several support services in place through the Student Affairs department to help students be successful in their Remote Delivery educational experience.
