Students enrolled at Drake State Community & Technical College this fall will have the benefit of a hybrid learning environment. With strong technical and lab-based programs, the College will utilize remote learning in combination with in-person instruction where safe and appropriate. The College has implemented a safety plan which includes screening students, cleaning and sanitization according to federal and state recommendations, and making accommodations for proper social distancing.
“It is challenging to find the right balance between the need for quality education and protecting the health of our students and employees,” said Drake State President Dr. Patricia Sims. “Being flexible and innovative enables us to serve our students as safely as possible.”
Keeping students and employees informed of current best safety practices will remain a priority through the semester, which will begin August 17. All in-person instruction will end November 20. Remote learning will continue to the end of the semester on December 11.
