What a wonderful District-wide Flex Day on Thursday, August 23, 2021!
Thanks to Dr. Inger Stark (Staff Development Officer) for planning an informative day of talks and professional development sessions.
Thanks also to the 381 people who attended the Flex Day Plenary Session – record attendance for a District Flex Day session! Officially, there were 594 total “attendees” (381 unique) with 345 as the maximum logged in concurrently.
Dr. Jannett N. Jackson, Interim Chancellor, gave an informative and inspiring “Welcome” which is available on YouTube here. Dr. Jackson told the story of “Ubuntu” that was part of her August 13th update. Among many topics, she provided a recap of the special reports responding to ACCJC, FCMAT, and the Alameda County Grand Jury. She then briefed us on the COVID vaccination policy and all the work that has been done to prepare the campuses for classes beginning on August 23rd. Please watch here https://youtu.be/y7_Vry24jHM.
