Campuses and District Office Remain Closed through Summer Semester

29 June 2020

Dear Peralta Community,

The Peralta Community College District college campuses and the district office will remain closed through August 2, 2020.  Personnel performing essential functions may be required to work on-site.

On June 18, 2020, the Alameda County Public Health Officer issued Health Officer Order No. 20-14a which extended Shelter in Place indefinitely. It has not been rescinded. We realize the open-ended nature of this order makes planning difficult and hope this update is helpful.

District continues remote service and work-from-home

Even with this revised order, the Peralta Community College District—including the College of Alameda, Berkeley City College, Laney College, Merritt College, and the District Office—will remain in remote service modality through the end of Summer 2020 semester (August 2, 2020).   Most classes and services will continue to be offered remotely, and most employees will continue to work from home, during that time frame.

It may be possible at a later date to restore limited campus operations under certain conditions. The District’s emergency operations team continues to assess conditions and develop plans based on the guidance in the health order and on institutional capacities. Any future changes in the District’s current operating model will be shared in advance.

Return to Campus Task Force

I have convened a Return to Campus Task Force to make recommendations on a safe transition back to work on the campuses and at the District Office.

Thank you to the custodians, groundskeepers, and engineers, who have been reporting to campus throughout the shelter in place orders and to the Administrators, Classified Professionals and Faculty who continue to demonstrate remarkable dedication to serving the community and meeting the mission.

We will continue to focus on keeping the community safe and supporting student educational needs during this time and into the future.

Take good care,

Dr. Regina Stanback Stroud, Chancellor
