Vermont Technical College’s rules for return include mix of in-person, online instruction

RANDOLPH CENTER — Vermont Technical College plans to offer classes through a hybrid model including both online and in-person instruction in the fall, according to an announcement on Wednesday.

Lecture elements of classes will be taught remotely, while hands-on instruction will be taught in person. For most students, this will mean coming to campus for up to three non-consecutive weeks throughout the semester and staying in residence halls in a “hotel-like model” at the school’s Williston and Randolph Center campuses.

“Students are expected to pack for one week then return home not leaving any belongings in the residence halls, enabling us to sanitize the room for the next group of students,” the school said.

Out-of-state students, those with special housing needs and those without internet access can apply to remain in residence halls for the full semester.

Some employees will continue working from home, while others with “student-facing” jobs will come in on “a rotating basis.”

Face coverings will be mandatory for everyone on campus, VTC said. Daily health screenings will also be required for employees and commuting students.
