The State Fair Community College Board of Trustees voted at the March 26 meeting to approve a resolution that addresses SFCC operations during the COVID 19 pandemic.

The purpose is to ensure that the health and welfare of students and employees are protected. Higher education institutions across the nation and Missouri are implementing similar resolutions.

The resolution grants temporary authority to the President of State Fair Community College “to place in to immediate effect temporary lawful policies, procedures or other measures, which the president deems necessary or appropriate to meet the COVID-19 public health emergency, including but not limited to safeguarding persons and property and maintaining college activities as appropriate.”

Any temporary policies, procedures or measures adopted by the president will be in effect until the president or the board decides that the authorization is no longer needed. The resolution does require the president to keep the board advised to policies, procedures or other measures adopted under this resolution.

State Fair Community College is committed to not only serving the educational needs but also ensuring the safety and wellbeing of its students and the community. News and updates are available at www.sfccmo.edu.
