Chancellor Judy C. Miner sent the following message via email to Foothill-De Anza district employees, inviting all those interested to join an online session on return-to-campus planning, from 2-3 p.m. on Wednesday, May 26.
May 5, 2021
Attached is a summary of the Consultation Task Force discussion that took place on May 4, 2021. I am extremely grateful to all the participants for their insights and suggestions that produced such thoughtful dialogue and look forward to future meetings.
Particularly noteworthy is the preference of attendees for our district to require our employees and students to be vaccinated if they return to campus. (Exemptions would be allowed for medical and religious reasons.) Implementation of such a requirement would be conditioned upon:
- full approval of vaccines by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration;
- adoption of a policy by the Foothill-De Anza Board of Trustees; and
- establishment of administrative procedures by the Chancellor's Advisory Council.
More information will be available during the return-to-campus planning and lessons learned session on May 26 from 2-3 p.m. and you are welcome to send questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There will be a recording in case you can't join us live.
As we await further developments and opportunities to meet, I hope we will do everything we can individually and collectively to encourage vaccinations and safe behaviors that will allow us to enjoy each other’s company without needing a Zoom link!
