Hello Adult Career Center students,
By now, I am sure you heard the announcement that Lorain County JVS is going to remote instruction starting on Monday, November 16 for both high school and Adult Career Center students. While we did not see a large number of COVID-19 cases within our building, or COVID-19 spread throughout the building, we all must do our part to contain the spread of this virus. With the exponential increase in cases throughout our community, we felt it was in the best interests of our students and staff to go back to a remote learning model.
Our goal is to provide the best instruction possible in a remote fashion with the majority of our classes. However, some classes will not resume until we can return to in-person instruction. In either case, your instructor reached out to you this weekend. If you are not sure how your program is moving forward, please reach out to us at [email protected] or reach out to your instructor directly. I hope this return to remote instruction is short-term. Most of our current programs have enough material that can be covered remotely while still allowing you to earn hours. In the event that we are remote longer than we anticipate, and we no longer have valuable material to cover remotely, we will suspend the class until we can be back in-person. We will reach out to you directly if this happens.
For now, we are following a synchronous instruction model. What exactly does that mean? Students will attend and do their schoolwork at the same time they usually have class, so they are earning the same hours as they could while attending in-person instruction. We know that this will have some challenges, but our goal is to continue your education and your path towards completion.
We are working on getting all your classes updated in Canvas. We anticipate this will be completed today so check your email. If you have a different email than you used when registering for class, its important that you let your instructor know immediately. You will work with your instructors via email, ZOOM, and Canvas for class updates and virtual class sessions.
If you need technical assistance, visit the Student Technology Support page or call the Student Technology Help Desk at (440) 774-1051, Ext. 21233.
Thank you and stay safe,
Director of Adult Career Center
