Survey Response Requested
Ending Foothill-De Anza's COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement
As mentioned in my last message of 2022, we are considering ending the district's COVID-19 vaccine mandate for students and employees as of the start of the spring quarter and would like to get your feedback regarding the proposed change. To that end, please complete the single question survey available at the following link by February 23 at noon:
Some of the reasons we believe a change makes sense at this time are the end of California's COVID-19 state of emergency, abandonment of plans for a statewide vaccination requirement for K-12 students, and the action of many community college districts and other organizations to remove or consider removal of vaccine mandates.
After survey results are received, the Chancellor's Advisory Council and Board of Trustees will be asked to consider ending the requirement following the timeline below:
Chancellor's Advisory Council meeting - February 24
Board of Trustees meeting (first reading) - February 28
Board of Trustees meeting (rescind policy) - March 13
Notice to employees and students - March 14
First day of spring quarter/end of COVID-19 vaccination mandate - April 10
Thank you for participating in the survey.
