Los Angeles Community College District Chancellor Francisco Rodriguez Friday announced the district’s spring 2020 classes at all nine campuses will continue through remote platforms for the remainder of the semester due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“We are working with faculty and staff to develop a plan for returning these important classes as soon as possible to the colleges in a safe learning environment,” Rodriguez said. “We will keep our students informed when decisions are made.”
The spring semester ends June 8, and summer session classes are scheduled to begin June 15. Student support services and most of the district’s business operations will be conducted in similar remote environments, LACCD announced.
The colleges include Los Angeles City College, East Los Angeles College, Los Angeles Harbor College, Los Angeles Mission College, Los Angeles Pierce College, Los Angeles Southwest College, Los Angeles Trade-Technical College, Los Angeles Valley College and West Los Angeles College.
LACCD’s downtown Los Angeles office, Van de Kamp Innovation Center and the South Gate Campus of East Los Angeles College are also to remain on a remote schedule.
The district has about 150,000 students and personnel involved in spring 2020 semester courses who are affected by the changes, Rodriguez said.
Additional information is available on the district’s website at www.laccd.edu/coronavirus, including updated frequently asked questions. Information will also be posted to LACCD social media platforms, www.facebook.com/LACCD/ and twitter.com/laccd.
