Fall and Spring Clarification
Posted By: Holly Scheller - 11/9/2020 12:05:57 PM

As we near the end of the semester, I want to commend each of you for your focus on success as a Vernon College student.  We have five weeks of the semester remaining including Thanksgiving break and final exams.

During times like these that we are experiencing,  rumors can be rampant.  A primary purpose of this communication is to provide clarity on two issues:

1. There has been no official board of trustee or administrative decision to revise the fall schedule.  There is full expectation for classes to continue after Thanksgiving,( face-to-face, online, hybrid/blended, TEAMS, etc.), and for final exams to be conducted December 7-12, 2020 as scheduled.

2. There is full expectation to begin the 2021 Spring semester as scheduled:
January 4, 2021 (Monday)—All  employees, except faculty on nine month contracts, report to work 
January 11, 2021 (Monday)—All-employee professional development to kick-off the semester.  The activities and schedule are in discussion.
January 12—on-site registration at the Vernon campus 
January 13-14—on-site registration at Century City Center
January 19 (Tuesday)—Classes begin for all delivery modalities (as per the Class Schedule)
Please review the current Vernon College Plan for the 2020 Fall semester.  The protocol, processes, and recommendations will continue through the 2021 Spring semester.  Please wear face coverings, social distance,  utilize appropriate hygiene techniques, and follow other recommended COVID-19 protocol.

I wish each of you great success as we conclude this most unusual semester.  I look forward to a very productive spring semester for all of us!

Dusty R. Johnston, Ed. D.
President, Vernon College
