Monterey County has finally moved into the “red tier” of the State of California Blueprint for a Safer Economy. While the red tier is still restrictive, there are a few steps that MIIS can take to continue gradually re-opening opportunities on campus.
As the COVID vaccine becomes more available, we are seeing the following two opportunities for some, but not all, students currently living in Monterey County to sign up for an appointment to receive the vaccine.
Beginning tomorrow, Wednesday, February 24, we will take the next small step in gradually providing on-campus opportunities for students. We have arranged to have five offices in the McCone building available for individual students who might need a stable WiFi connection for class, job interviews, and other important online meetings.
The Monterey County Health Department and the Office of Emergency Services have notified the Monterey County Office of Education that all employees who are currently working in education and childcare in Monterey County have the opportunity to begin registering for the vaccination process beginning Wednesday, March 3, 2021.
As a response to the disruptions caused by the Covid-19 crisis, we are modifying the criteria for Immersive Professional Learning funding to better accommodate travel and Shelter-in-Place restrictions, with the goal to still provide meaningful immersive experiences for our students.
