Northland Community and Technical College will be suspending all classes through Sunday, March 29, and will then conduct classes through alternative delivery formats through the end of the semester.
The decision, made in conjunction with the Minnesota State System Office, also applies for a number of schools in Minnesota.
Classes will resume Monday, March 30, via alternative delivery formats for the remainder of the semester.
Alternate formats means any number of possible changes to how a class is held. For example, it could mean using technology in a different way or even a change in the number of times a class is held. Because many students do not have adequate access to technology, and some subjects cannot be taught in an online format, the college is actively exploring a range of alternatives.
