College announces hybrid classes for fall semester

Students at Lassen Community College will encounter a different kind of instruction this fall — a mixture of on-campus and remote learning — in order for the college and students to be prepared should the COVID-19 virus present a danger in Lassen County later this year.

Trevor Albertson, acting superintendent/president at LCC, said, “This coming fall, 2020, Lassen College will be open and offering on-campus classes. This decision has been made in concert with the prevailing health conditions in the community, which, at this point, are good. There will be one caveat to this decision: our on-campus classes will have a hybrid component associated with them, wherein one-third of the course section will be offered via remote education. This will afford our students and faculty the flexibility needed to revert to full online learning should local health conditions dictate such a necessity.”

Albertson praised the faculty and staff for their commitment and dedication to the community during these trying times.

“Of equal importance, I want to recognize and thank our faculty for their Herculean efforts in ensuring the continuity of instruction throughout this challenging period. If not for their dedication and acts of service, we could not have been able to continue offering courses. They are fantastic folks who are clearly dedicated to their craft. Much the same can be said of our classified staff. They have shown a commitment to their work few in the state could match. If not for their abilities, the campus would have shuttered.

“Thank you to all our employees for their selflessness.”

Registration for summer and fall classes is currently underway. To apply for admission, go to the college’s website at lassencollege.edu.
