Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College GED Teacher Debbie Fox welcomes her adult education students back to her advanced language arts class at SKYCTC on Thursday, Jan. 9, 2020, after a three-week hiatus for winter break. 

Students at Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College will continue their studies through distance learning for the remainder of the spring semester, the school announced on its website Wednesday.

“Colleges will offer only online/remote classroom instruction through the last day of instruction on May 2nd and use online/remote assessment during the regular final exam week of May 4–10,” SKYCTC announced.

The decision follows a directive from Jay Box, president of Kentucky’s Community and Technical College System.

“This decision will help provide consistency for students and faculty who are impacted by conflicting dates and messaging from multiple colleges,” the announcement reads.

KCTCS colleges will remain open on a limited basis with limited services. Universities are following a similar approach.

“We will continue to provide student support services virtually until the colleges reopen on a regular schedule,” the announcement reads.

Spring commencement ceremonies have also been postponed, with a decision on new dates to come later this spring.
