On Monday, June 7, 2021 at Laney College, free Moderna COVID vaccinations were given to students, staff, their families, and community members. Interim Chancellor Dr. Jannett N. Jackson provided an update on the vaccine event during the Chancellor's Report at the June 8, 2021 Board of Trustees meeting.
Exciting things are always happening at the Peralta Colleges. For the past year, most of these exciting things have been "virtual" but that is starting to change. On March 31, 2021, the women of the Laney College Water Polo team hosted a scrimmage against Las Positas College. This scrimmage was the first Peralta Sports Event since the Alameda County sheltering in place order began to protect us from the spread of COVID-19.
On Wednesday, March 10, 2021, an announcement on behalf of Interim Chancellor Dr. Carla Walter was sent to all District employees.
Dear Peralta Community,
I’m writing to help us all in our planning for summer and fall 2021 semesters.
We continue to work closely with local public health officials and the State Chancellor's Office while we serve the community and meet our mission. Berkeley City College, College of Alameda, Laney College and Merritt College will continue to offer the majority of the courses and services as online or hybrid this summer and fall semester.
The following message first appeared in the Chancellor's Update email from November 18, 2020. You can read the full Chancellor's Update, which includes information about the state chancellor's equity initiative, accreditation, grant applications, and more, right here: https://info.peralta.edu/chancellors-update-november-18-2020
These are challenging times for everyone. All of us have had to make adjustments in the way we work or study thanks to the ongoing shelter in place guidelines. As recently announced, all four of the Peralta college campuses as well as the district office are closed through the end of the year while the Fall 2020 semester will be taught online with just a few exceptions. Working at home is now the reality for most Peralta employees. Our homes are now our offices too.
