Messaging from the CALP Team at Advanced Education
Earlier today, the following information was sent out from the CALP Team at Advanced Education:
Following the announcement Sunday from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer that there are now indications of COVID-19 community spread, Alberta has increased its measures to limit the acceleration of the COVID-19 spread. These measures include mandating the suspension of post-secondary classes (campuses remain open), as well as closing K-12 schools and daycares.
Advanced Education advises the CALP system to take the same precautionary measures to limit the spread of COVID-19 and suspend in-person learning until further direction is provided.
We understand that CALP serves a vulnerable population and that your organization may be the only safe space in the community for your learners. It is up to your organization’s board and staff if you want to remain open to provide learner support services. Where possible, we encourage all CALP grant recipients to explore the online delivery of foundational programming online.
Should you choose to remain open, please refer to Alberta Health Services, for the best hygiene practices, the latest public health restrictions, and other information on COVID-19.
If you have any questions, please contact your grant manager.
