BARNSTABLE, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Cape Cod Community College has announced that in-person learning will be back for the fall semester, and the school is now allowing students to decide for themselves if they want to return to campus for class.
We're all experts by now on the options out there for education during the pandemic, there's in-person, hybrid and remote learning. But have you ever heard of hy-flex learning?
Cape Cod Community College's Communications Director Patrick Stone said the school is now offering the hy-flex option. This will allow students to choose whether they take a class in-person or remotely.
"They have busy hectic personal lives, they have schedules, kids and families, so really online and remote classes have been a benefit," said Stone.
On Campus, he said the college plans to adhere to safety protocols that include continued temperature checks upon entry to campus, social distancing in the classroom and masks.
Stone added the school will adhere to the CDC's and the states guidance and requirements as they begin to change.
"The temperature checks will be there, we'll be taking a look at the mask mandate and what the guidance is at that point because these things change on a day-to-day basis," said Stone.
