OAKHURST — State Center Community College District (SCCCD) officials have announced the district will continue to offer all classes online-only through the remainder of the spring and summer semesters.
“In keeping with our goal of assisting in the efforts to decrease the spread of COVID-19, we will cancel all campus gatherings through June, including graduation,” said Dr. Paul Parnell, SCCCD chancellor.
SCCCD campuses include the Oakhurst Community College Center as well as Madera Community College.
Dr. Parnell also had this update for students set to graduate this spring: “The Colleges in conjunction with division faculty will be working with their Associated Student Government leaders to develop virtual and remote celebrations that will honor your achievement. Since we are not sure how this will look, please hold on to your graduation gowns for the time being.”
On Tuesday, Dr. Parnell posted an online video updating district employees, instructors and students about the COVID-19 crisis.
