PUEBLO — Pueblo Community College President Patty Erjavec announced Thursday the school is making plans to resume normal class operations for the fall 2020 semester.

According to a press release, PCC campuses expect the semester to begin on August 17 utilizing all forms of instruction -- face-to-face, remote, and online -- as long as there are no further changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Campuses will continue to follow the health and safety precautions recommended by public health officials.

Erjavec said the top priority will be the safey of employees and students.

She also noted a skilled workforce will be even more vital as the state and nation emerge from the pandemic.

“As a community college, we have always been flexible and responsive to community and industry needs,” she said. “We know that when businesses and industries reopen their doors, they will be looking for highly skilled, educated employees. Whether they earn a degree by attending classes on campus or through remote learning, PCC graduates will be prepared to support the economic vitality we all will be seeking to rebuild.”
