FALL 2020 Reopening Information (July 27, 2020)

With the August 15 start date for the fall term nearing, students will receive weekly communication to provide up to date information regarding the Fall 2020 Semester.

Restore Illinois Plan –  Phase 3 Preparedness.  

Students should be prepared to adjust instructional delivery modes in the event the Governor’s office requires schools to revert to Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan. Phase 3 would require online/remote learning. At this time (July 27), schools are in Phase 4 which allows controlled face-to-face instruction.

TECHNOLOGY REQUIREMENTS

Online and/or remote delivery will require students to have access to a reliable internet connection. Students will find most success if utilizing a computer, laptop, or IPAD that has camera and microphone access.   

COVID-19 Precautions and Student Expectations

The success for on campus instruction will depend on everyone displaying personal responsibility adhering to social distancing, wearing a mask/face covering on campus, hand washing, and following the symptom-free guidelines that are required to be on campus.

Masks/Face Coverings. All faculty, staff, and students who are on campus must wear a mask/face covering at all times while on campus.  Masks/face coverings will be required in the classroom.  It is expected that all students will cooperate with this requirement.  For students not wishing to wear a mask or face covering, please consider fully online options.

Student Attestation Screener. Prior to coming on campus each day, all students must certify having no COVID related symptoms and exposure. In the near future, a Student Attestation Screener can be accessed on e-STORM. A complete form must be completed prior to entering the building as well as summary attestation the beginning each class attended on campus.

Minimizing Time On Campus. Reducing time on campus will minimize the spread of the virus. Students should avoid loitering or large gatherings on campus.  All student services will be open to provide support to students.  However, social distancing guidelines and a controlled access environment will be followed. 

HyFlex – Face to Face Classes. In order to adhere to the six-feet social distancing guideline, courses that have higher enrollment will follow a “HyFlex” mode of instruction. Instructors will assign students on campus class attendance on alternating class sessions while those at home can watch synchronously or asynchronously (at a later time). Recordings will be available for three days before being removed. Instructors will be informing students via Blackboard if the HyFlex model will be needed for a course and if so, will assign students a specific start date. If you are not notified by your instructor, you should assume to attend the first day of your scheduled class.

ENROLLMENT  CONTINUES for FALL 2020!

On site enrollment and course registration are underway with Academic Advising, Enrollment Services, Financial Aid, and Student Accounts providing services to students in the gymnasium at the Belleville Campus and at Sam Wolf Granite City Campus. Staff members are ready to serve all students Monday through Thursday with extended hours and days of operation beginning August 3. Students can also register on line through estorm.swic.edu.
