Proactive Measures to Deter the Spread of the Coronavirus - March 27, 2020

Updated as of March 27, 2020-SAU Tech continues to remain vigilant in seeking creative ways to deliver education while protecting our students, faculty, and staff during this trying time. As of March 27, 2020, the following updates are in place for the delivery of services, programs, and operations.

  • Unless otherwise directed or contacted by SAU Tech Program Faculty, students DO NOT return to regularly scheduled classes on Monday, March 30, 2020. On April 13, we will reassess and determine if any changes to this directive need to be made. Most students have moved to online courses, and some technical students will work with faculty to complete course requirements to finish the semester. All second 7-week classes start online on March 30. The list of online classes is updated and includes more courses that are now online. Information for non-online classes and directions to students in these courses is below under academics.
  • March 30, 2020-SAU Tech will go to a reduced staffing model with identified staff members working from home and in shifts to ensure that vital services are in place. Health screenings will take place in a drive-through format in the Student Center parking area between 7:00 am and 9:00 am on Monday, March 30, for those returning to work. Individual supervisors will be notifying the staff and faculty of their work schedules.
  •  Prospective students, current students, and community members are encouraged to call or email staff members instead of coming to the campus in person. The College is utilizing virtual, email, and phone advising and registration for current and summer students.  

The College will continue in the reduced staffing model until April 13 when we will reassess the situation and make further decisions.
