COVID-19 Updates

 

Amarillo College has implemented a 3-phase Action Plan in response to COVID-19 (the Coronavirus).

 

Remote Learning


Services like Microsoft Office 365, Google Meet, other Google Apps, and Blackboard all can assist you complete your coursework, meet remotely, and continue projects from home or anywhere outside an Amarillo College Campus.

For more information and a list of tools for working, learning, and teaching remotely, go to www.actx.edu/remote

Remote Learning Resources

 

The 3 phases are:

Phase I: Preparing for and preventing the spread of the COVID-19
Phase II
: Reacting when the virus is officially diagnosed in our community
Phase III: Reacting if an AC student, faculty or staff member is diagnosed

Throughout each of these phases it is our steadfast intention that Amarillo College will remain in operation and that we will cling to our values!

 

As of March 31, we will move to Phase III.

Beginning March 31, Amarillo College will officially enter Phase III of our COVID-19 Action Plan. In compliance with the city of Amarillo's Red Level shelter-in-place order, we will further constrict in-person services with the enaction of Phase III. The College, which is considered essential by the city, intends to remain open throughout this crisis—but with the bare minimum of on-campus staff members reporting physically to work. While this does not change students' remote learning plan and students are unlikely to notice a drastic change in in-person services offered, this transition is critical in elevating the health and safety of AC students & employees.

 

On March 18, we moved to Phase II.

This decision was based on President Trump’s request that gatherings be limited to no more than 10 people, and because AC’s minimum class size is 12. To conduct in-person classes became untenable. Additionally, cases of COVID-19 were confirmed in Amarillo. Therefore, in keeping with our Phase II guidelines, Amarillo College paused classes for one week in order to make a successful migration to a remote delivery system.

 

The second 8 weeks of the spring semester will now begin on Monday, March 30.

As this point, tech-supported learning and working remotely has become necessary, which will entail a wide range of online and network technologies for learning and working remotely and ensuring your success through any necessary alternate means of communication. Instructions will vary depending on the classes being taken. Faculty will provide students with specific instructions on how to proceed. The end of the spring semester will now be May 22. 

 

We will continue to be informed by local, state, and national governmental and public health authorities, including the Centers for Disease Control.

 

Phase II

When COVID-19 is diagnosed in our community.

What does Phase II mean? 

  • Amarillo College will remain OPEN.
  • Classes will be paused for one week. Spring classes resume on March 30. 
  • Classes will migrate to a tech-supported learning format. 
  • All travel outside our service area has been canceled or postponed.
  • All events/trainings/gatherings of more than 10 people will be canceled, postponed, or moved online through at least May 22. 
  • All 'community enrichment' Continuing Education courses (including spring Kids' College classes) will be suspended.
  • We ask that you wash hands frequently & follow guidelines set by the CDC. 
  • Increased disinfection and sanitization across campus.
  • On-campus services will be limited to those listed below
