RPCC students regarding completion of classes:
RPCC’s focus on learning has not changed. We will do everything possible to provide every student with the learning experiences required to complete their classes. There is a possibility classes will have to be extended past the end of the semester to complete course learning outcomes, but we will do what it takes. If it becomes necessary to issue incomplete grades for students who cannot complete necessary on-campus classroom components, I have the authority to direct actions to help students and faculty work through these concerns.
Our jobs as instructors are to help students become completers. Course learning outcomes should be our primary focus moving forward, not time in class or lab. Instructors will assess each student individually and determine what is remaining for the student to meet learning outcomes and pass required assessments.
Outcomes are the current focus, taking priority over seat time and instruction time.
The processes for doing this are different than normal, but we’ve determined this is the best way to help as many of our students become completers as possible.
We thank our students for being patient as we have had to make changes in this fluid time, and we hope they will continue to do so.
