Santa Rosa Junior College will switch to remote instruction indefinitely starting March 30, SRJC President Dr. Frank Chong announced in a press release Friday.

SRJC will support the switch to online by providing resources and development to tech-challenged students and instructors.

The school’s current suspension of classes, including online courses, will continue through March 29. The school is asking students, instructors and employees to remain off campus during that time.

The announcement was made in collaboration with student and faculty leadership bodies after Gov. Newsom on Thursday ordered Californians to remain at home indefinitely.

SRJC leadership, in consultation with faculty, will be making decisions this week on what to do about courses with lab components.

All campus events through April 7 are canceled, and more cancellations or postponements are likely, according to an accompanying FAQ. For more information, SRJC Student Health Services have set up a coronavirus webpage at
