As the state moves into fewer restrictions with the Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan, more activities and businesses will be able to start up and get back to some kind of normal operations.
This will not be the case at Sauk Valley Community College. During the Board of Trustees meeting Tuesday night, College President Dr. David Hellmich said the college will not look much different in Phase 3 than it did during Stage 2.
Hellmich said the school will still be highly restricted to students and faculty and any class that can be taught virtually will be. Hellmich and Dr. Jon Mandrel stated there are some exceptions. One of those would be welding classes. Mandrel said this type of class cannot be effectively taught online.
Other exceptions may be some of the science lads where no more than 5 students would be allowed. Hellmich did say during Phase 3 there will be an administrator on campus at all times again.
It was also discussed that the school has spoken with students and faculty in regards to concerns and suggestions. The school now believes their online courses are even better than before.
