ESCC/AAC Faculty and Staff,
In response to Governor Ivey’s memo authorizing state employees to work from home, and with Chancellor Baker’s permission, we are directing students not to report to class tomorrow. Faculty members, if you would like some assistance with Canvas, please report to the MPR on the Enterprise campus tomorrow at 8:00 am to meet with IT and Distance Learning representatives. A representative will also be at the Ozark campus computer lab at 7:30 am.
If you are comfortable with Canvas, I encourage you to stop by your offices tomorrow morning, retrieve the items you need, and return home to work until further notice. We have sent out, via several communications, a survey to students to identify any technological needs so that we may address them individually.
To ensure a smooth transition, non-instructional employees should report to work at the normal time to meet with their supervisors and discuss a plan to work from home for the next few weeks. As we have stressed, our first priority is the health, safety, and well-being of our community college. While we will be working remotely, the college will remain open and some employees may be asked to come in on an “as-needed” basis.
In closing, I want to thank you for your support and all that you do for our students. We have a difficult task ahead. Please reassure your students we are all here to help them through this transition. I ask that you continue to check your school email. We will be communicating with you daily over the next few weeks. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me. I will be here!
ESCC and AAC Students,
Please do not report to any ESCC/AAC campus tomorrow for classes. As a result of Gov. Ivey’s directives, we are in the process of developing a plan to deliver all instruction online through Canvas. Please visit Canvas as soon as possible and complete our survey to assess technology needs. We will be taking a count of the number of computers needed and will contact you each individually to schedule a time to meet with those that need assistance. Please know that your education is very important and we are committed to delivering quality instruction online. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us. Ozark campus students, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Enterprise campus and all other sites, please email email@example.com.
