Synchronous teaching is where the teacher is present at the same time as the student. This is almost always the case in a face-to-face environment. Synchronous teaching can also take place via online learning, through the use of video conferencing and live chat or instant messaging. As with the face-to-face environment, the learners in synchronous online teaching can ask questions in real time.

Asynchronous online teaching is where teaching materials are posted online, and students work through them in their own time, communicating with each other and the teacher via discussion boards or forums, or even by email. Good asynchronous teaching will include a variety of media, including (but not limited to) audio and video clips. With an asynchronous mode of teaching, students can work at their own pace and at times of day which are convenient for them.

We have worked all summer to ensure safety while you are on campus. All classrooms are sanitized daily and covid-19 safety guidelines are posted throughout campus in classrooms, before you enter the parking lots, and on buildings.

Students should be completing the online health screen daily prior to coming to campus, and students should stay home if they are feeling ill.  If the student begins to feel ill while in class, please send them home immediately and have them contact their PCP.  They can also contact the Health Office for a nurse consult and I can assist them in finding a PCP or answer questions/concerns.

Yes. Buildings are cleaned and sanitized every day and our ventilation system is working properly.

The Reedley College Counseling Department is using Starfish to schedule Zoom video/phone general counseling appointments. If you’re having difficulty navigating Starfish, please call 559-638-0337 to schedule an appointment over the phone. Appointment requests can also be submitted by email to .

Contact a DSPS counselor at 559-638-0332 to set up an appointment, which will take place either via Zoom or phone.

For students with chronic medical conditions that may prohibit them from wearing a mask, the student may contact the Health Office to schedule an appointment to see the College Nurse.  A signed doctor’s note will need to be provided stating the student cannot wear a face mask and the nurse can provide them with a face shield—though this is not as effective as a mask, keeping distance from others will be key.

Inform your instructor immediately and do not come to campus whatsoever.

Everything will return to an on-line format. Your instructor will give you directions via zoom and/or Canvas on how to proceed if the current status changes.

The agreement is an acknowledgment from students that they will follow covid-19 safety measures while on any SCCCD campus. The form was sent to all students electronically from the district that they must digitally sign prior to coming to campus.

COVID-19 information may change daily as scientists and healthcare professionals continue to learn more about this new virus.  The most important part of staying informed is making sure you are accessing up-to-date information from reliable sources.   Do not believe everything you hear or read on social media or online.  Double-check to make sure the information you consume is factual.  Good sources for up-to-date, factual and reliable information include:

From the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: The risk of getting coronavirus disease 2019 is currently low in the US, due in part to quick action from health authorities. However, some people are worried about the disease. Fear and anxiety can lead to social stigma towards Chinese or other Asian-Americans. Stigma and discrimination can occur when people associate an infectious disease, such as COVID-19, with a population or nationality, even though not everyone in that population or from that region is specifically at risk for the disease (for example, Chinese-Americans and other Asian-Americans living in the United States). Stigma hurts everyone by creating more fear or anger towards ordinary people instead of the disease that is causing the problem. We can fight stigma and help not hurt others by providing social support. We can communicate the facts that being Chinese or Asian American does not increase the chance of getting or spreading COVID-19.
