Madison College (MATC) has released the school's plan for the fall semester amid the pandemic.
MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) - Madison College (MATC) has released the school's plan for the fall semester amid the pandemic.
Madison College President Jack Daniels said in a release Wednesday that at this time, the college anticipates about 70 percent of all learning will happen online.
For classes that require some in-person instruction, Daniels explains that instruction will take a hybrid format, with some lessons online and others in-person at MATC facilities.
"Fully in-person classes will be extremely limited to targeted occupational programs," according to Daniels.
Even with limited in-person instruction, Madison College plans to conclude in-person classes by Thanksgiving. The remainder of that semester will be completed fully online.
The college will be loaning laptop computers and Wi-Fi hotspots at no extra charge during the fall semester. The credit/no-credit option offered during the spring and summer to students will be available again this fall, according to Daniels.
“Our plans are aligned and consistent with local orders and ordinances of the cities and counties we are located in, as well as the State of Wisconsin’s rules and regulations... While many of us want our campus return to be back to normal, it will look very different. New safety protocols have been implemented, and we need everyone in our community to commit to a shared responsibility to prevent the spread of COVID-19.”
