Academic Continuity

Central Oregon Community College strives to maintain academic continuity when normal academic activities are disrupted. Whether weather, illness, or another natural disruption, COCC and the office of eLearning and Academic Technology has collected the following guides and tutorials that will assist you with preparing online instructional materials to prevent from getting behind in your academic schedule.

Spring Term Instruction

Spring term class schedule will be altered to allow faculty time to prepare alternate forms of instruction for the first few weeks of the term. There will be three major changes to the schedule:

    • March 30 – April 3rd there will be no classes held but faculty will remain on contract and use this time to develop alternative instructional delivery methods and materials. The alternative delivery requirement is not expected to last for the entire term; however, faculty should prepare to teach remotely through at least April 28 and maybe longer.
    • Spring term classes will begin one week later than originally scheduled, with remote instruction beginning on Monday, April 6.
    • Spring term will end on June 12 as scheduled, but there will be no week reserved for final exams. Classes will be scheduled through Friday, June 12. Any final exam should be held during the last scheduled class period, as is done during summer term.
