Spring 2021 Blue Devil Comeback Plan

KCKCC’s Blue Devils Comeback Plan is guided by information collected from several organizations with expertise in the field of disease control and public health preparedness. Key documents that were considered when developing this plan were: Interim Guidance for Administrators of US Institutions of Higher Education (Center for Disease Control) and and ReStart WYCO plan from the UG .

The ensuing comprehensive plan is provided as a guide of best practices and contains requirements KCKCC is implementing to help ensure the health and well-being of our entire college community. The plan will be amended as needed as new information becomes available.

Spring 2021

A tremendous amount of planning has gone into how classes will be offered to help ensure students’ continued success this fall. Given the current environment that the COVID-19 pandemic has created, KCKCC will be offering classes in four ways for the coming semester:

  • Face-to-Face: Will be offered face-to-face at one of KCKCC’s physical locations. The college is taking extra precautions to help ensure the safety of both students and employees, including reducing face-to-face class sizes and replacing some furniture to maximize social distancing. At a minimum, KCKCC will follow all current county guidelines, and face masks may be required. Multiple sanitation stations have been distributed across all facilities, and class times have been adjusted to reduce high student traffic in the hallways between classes.
  • Online: A significant number of courses will be offered in a traditional online format. Traditional online courses are delivered online, but do not have scheduled class meeting times. These courses will be listed as “online” in the class schedule.
  • Virtual: Other courses will continue to meet on a set schedule, but will do so online through Zoom or other video technology, as shown in WebAdvisor. For example, you might have a virtual class that will meet through Zoom from 10 to 10:50 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The exact meeting days and times will be shown on WebAdvisor and on your class schedule. Virtual courses will be listed as “virtual” in the class schedule.
  • Blended: Classes that are delivered in a blended format will meet both face-to-face and online. These will be designated as “blended” in the class schedule.

KCKCC uses Zoom to facilitate meetings and virtual classrooms. Below are instructions on how to use Zoom.
