REDDING, Calif. – Shasta College officials announced Tuesday that fall and summer semester courses will be primarily online.

In a press release, officials said fall 2020 will be similar to spring 2020, which is primarily online, with a variety of safety protocols in place for those courses held on-site.

For summer courses, officials said they moved as many summer 2020 courses online as possible, in order to still provide a full range of class offerings.

“Courses in Allied Health, Fire Science, EMT, and some CTE disciplines will be in a hybrid format," said Peter Griggs, Director of Marketing and Outreach for Shasta College. "The hybrid format will entail using online for the lecture component and small groups, physically distanced for the in-person component. Shasta College leadership, in cooperation with the faculty, will be examining labs that may be required to retain an in-person element on a minimal basis.”

Shasta College employees will also continue to work remotely. All Shasta college physical locations remain closed at this time. Officials said the plans may change if state or federal guidance changes.

At this time, officials said decisions around the ECE center, on-campus events, and athletics have not been made.
