Dear LACCD Colleagues,       

I am writing to provide an important announcement regarding the upcoming Winter session and Spring 2021 semester.

We remain in a declared public health emergency at the national, state and local level, and, given the current health orders, safety protocols and restrictions, our best health experts agree that we are still far from full recovery without a vaccine or responsive therapeutics. 

Therefore, LACCD will deliver all classes for the Winter session and the Spring 2021 Semester in primarily remote/online learning environments for the remainder of the academic year.

We will continue to work with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health to provide limited access, on-campus instruction for classes that support the Essential Infrastructure Workforce, but what can be taught remotely and online will remain so for both of these upcoming terms. 

I appreciate the consultation with our District Academic Senate, our Faculty Guild, college presidents and senior administration, and support from our Board of Trustees that led to this decision.

On behalf of the Board of Trustees, I thank you for the outstanding work that you are accomplishing every day under these difficult circumstances, and thank you for your uncommon dedication to the success of our students.  Your resiliency and resolve are simply remarkable. 

LACCD Proud.  You are the best of us!

With my deepest admiration and respect,


Francisco C. Rodriguez, Ph.D.
