BEND, OR -- From Ron Paradis at COCC

The Central Oregon Community College Board of Directors passed a resolution today declaring that emergency conditions exist and, therefore, granted authority to President Laurie Chesley to take “any and all necessary actions to prepare and respond effectively to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19),” now through April 28, 2020.

The resolution allows Chesley to “ensure the continuation of public education, and protect the health and safety of students and staff” at COCC. While no specific changes were discussed at the meeting, this clears the way for modification of personnel policies related to the situation, transferring of funds necessary to respond to the emergency, limiting the types and numbers at gatherings on the campuses, and updating college rules and policies based on directives from federal, state or local authorities, if necessary.
