LLC’s plan for the upcoming spring semester


Madelyn Kidd, Editor-in-Chief

With finals coming up, many have wondered about Lake Land College’s plan for the spring semester. Many students are wondering if classes would be the same as they are now or if we would have more, or less, classes in-person. With COVID-19 cases on the rise in Illinois, and now with Governor Priztker announcing tier three regulations modifying our current safety measures, many students are unsure if we’ll have any in-person classes next semester.

Vice President for Academic Services Jon Althaus stated, “The College will offer courses in the same modalities this spring as it did in the fall semester. All lectures will be offered in virtual format. Labs will be in-person or virtual depending on how it is listed in the schedule.” 

President Dr. Josh Bullock also stated, “We will continue with our Return to Campus Plan, however, we have implemented several Enhanced Mitigations in response. The Illinois Community College Board has confirmed that our current operational plan of offering on-campus labs in career and technical programs is within the guidelines of the Governor’s recent Tier 3 announcement. The state of Illinois remains in Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan, however the Governor’s Tier 3 Resurgence Mitigations are an additional layer of precautionary measures. Lake Land College remains in Phase 4 of our Return to Campus Plan.” He added, “Our Lake Land College Enhanced Mitigations established Nov. 20, 2020, take precedence over our Return to Campus Plan.”

As of right now, Lake Land College’s plan is to continue as it is now with additional precautionary measures. Certain labs and programs will be in-person with other classes being virtual, online or a combination of both.
