POWELL, Ala. — Under the direction of President Dr. David Campbell, the Northeast Alabama Community College (NACC) Planning Committee has developed a plan for NACC’s operating status this fall.
The plan includes:
- All theory and lecture classes will be offered online, very similar to summer courses
- A few career-tech labs and clinicals will be offered on campus and will strictly follow Centers for Disease Control (CDC) COVID-19 prevention guidelines. These classes must complete on-campus instruction before Thanksgiving and be finished remotely by the instructor(s).
- Any events or activities on campus are strongly discouraged
- Administrative offices (financial aid, admissions, business, adult education, institutional research, student services) will open fully staffed.
“This plan has been developed to assure a safe and measured approach to returning to campus in the midst of the COVID-19 global pandemic. While I am eager for everyone to return to campus, my primary concern is the safety and health of our NACC family, including employees, students, and visitors,” said Campbell. “This plan will help us to continue to provide students with excellent educational opportunities as we conduct the business of the college in a manner that focuses on the wellbeing of all involved. We will adjust the plan as necessary when conditions change.”
“As we navigate this pandemic I encourage you to take the necessary precautions (on campus and in your everyday life) to protect yourself and others from coronavirus. Our actions impact others, so please join with me by being diligent to do our part in stopping the spread of this disease,” he concluded.
