Universities In Florida Moving Classes Online due to Coronavirus Concerns
The Florida Board of Governors for the State University System is directing all universities to move classes on-line for a two-week period due to the coronavirus pandemic. Effective immediately, the measure directs that all universities have been directed to transition to remote classes as soon as possible.
“Effective immediately, all universities will make plans to transition to remote instruction as soon as possible,” said spokesperson Renee Fargason in a statement. They also stated the following:
- UNIVERSITIES WITH STUDENTS CURRENTLY ON CAMPUS: State universities with students who have returned from spring break, should implement a process to transition to remote instruction immediately and encourage students to return home for at least 2 weeks. Each university will provide detailed information to their students, faculty, and staff at the earliest possible time regarding this transition.
- UNIVERSITIES WITH STUDENTS ON OR GOING ON SPRING BREAK: State universities with students who are currently on spring break or about to be on break should direct their students to NOT return to campus for at least 2 weeks following the conclusion of spring break. Each university will provide detailed information to their students, faculty, and staff at the earliest possible time regarding this transition.
- ESSENTIAL SERVICES: All universities will continue to provide essential services, such as dining, counseling, health services, library services, etc., potentially on a limited basis or remotely. Each university with clinical and other non-classroom based programs will communicate directly with those students.
- RESIDENTIAL HOUSING: While students are encouraged to remain off-campus, each university should develop a plan for providing residential accommodations for students who need assistance or must remain in place.
