Cerro Coso Community College to remain mostly remote for spring

For the most part, classes at Cerro Coso Community College will remain remote during the spring semester in an effort to keep students, faculty and staff healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“After consultation with the College presidents, the KCCD will continue the 2021 spring semester with hybrid operations,” Kern Community College District (KCCD) Chancellor Tom Burke said in a statement. “The majority of instruction and support operations will continue in the current online and remote environment. A limited number of instructional courses and support functions will be provided in-person for students to continue their progress to degree. Understanding this decision is disappointing to some, it was made in the interests of maintaining the health and safety of our students and employees.”

The only in-person classes will be those supporting training for essential workforce activities, such as welding and nursing, along with intercollegiate athletic classes.

Limited hours of tutoring and computer access will be available at each campus.
