Dear DCCC Community,
As you are aware, the recommendations and requirements issued by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and NC Department of Health are evolving rapidly. Davidson County Community College remains committed to taking the necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community.
Based on the latest developments and recommended best practices by state and federal authorities, DCCC will transition to an alternate operations model starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020. Faculty and staff with the ability to work remotely will begin doing so on Tuesday. Additional communications will be provided by supervisors to address remote work plans.
Business operations will continue, with phone lines and email communications remaining open.
VITA tax services have been suspended.
The Child Development Center will be closed through March 30, 2020. Parents will be kept up-to-date by the Center Director as additional information becomes available. During this unprecedented time, the College will apply payments that have been made to a child’s account for care when the Child Development Center reopens.
Many of you may be aware that our Davidson Campus is hosting the Centers for Disease Control National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). This community health survey and the four mobile units are unrelated to the current COVID-19 developments and will be removed within the next several weeks as the survey ends.
Students will remain on extended Spring Break through March 22, 2020. This includes Curriculum, Continuing Education, ESL, Adult High School, and High School Equivalency. Dual-enrolled students participating in Early College High School or Career and College Promise (CCP) programs should follow the same guidelines as traditional College students.
Clinicals and work-based learning are currently suspended.
We recognize transitioning to online courses will be an adjustment for many students and are committed to helping students succeed.
We are in uncharted waters and are committed to being as flexible as possible as we support our students. Increasing evidence shows that we all must do our part to help lessen the spread of this virus.
Stay up-to-date with developments at DCCC by visiting our Coronavirus Response page.
