BATON ROUGE, La - Today, the Louisiana Community and Technical College System announced college and system office closures for Monday, March 16, 2020, and Tuesday, March 17, 2020. For March 17, all essential personnel, as deemed by the System President and College Chancellor, should report to work. This decision adheres to the Executive Order signed by Governor John Bel Edwards today, which among other actions, seeks to reduce the amount of face-to-face public interaction to limit the potential spread of the Coronavirus or COVID-19.
Additionally, LCTCS colleges are adjusting their academic calendars as necessary to accommodate the Executive Order and to transition to the use of online instructional methods where applicable. For programs associated with occupational competencies and clinical experiences, faculty will finalize instructional plans during this transition period. For students who do not have access to broadband technology, each college will ensure that students can access dedicated computer labs for online learning and assessment with proper precautions taken for the health and wellness of students, faculty, and staff per CDC recommendations.
