Summary of Current LCCTC Reopening Plan:
- Based upon our county’s current “green” status, the LCCTC plans to open for in-person classes in the fall.
- LCCTC’s reopening plan will be a living document adapting as necessary to provide a plan for reopening that utilizes updated information specific to the time period of reopening. As a Career and Technical institute with a heavy emphasis in hands on instruction, it is important to note that the work of a CTC makes it impossible to provide an environment that would totally eliminate risk for COVID-19; however, we will strive to reduce the spread. In order to be effective as a community, this commitment of safety practices will take the partnership of all stakeholders (students, staff, parents, community) to follow basic guidelines and procedures and to self-report when exposed or symptomatic. As detailed and defined as this plan is, no plan will eliminate all risk.
