Eau Claire (WQOW) - With colleges working on how to keep students safe while getting them back on campus, Chippewa Valley Technical College released it's plan for the upcoming fall semester.
Classes will start as planned in late August and that that will included some in-person classes for certain courses.
The college has already brought some of it's classes back to campus this spring.
College president Bruce Barker says they're following all guidelines put in place by the state and county, including limiting class size.
Barker said the college's hands-on programs are crucial to the community, especially now.
"The tech college is very focused on what those essential businesses are in our community, the essential services," Barker said. "So, when you think about how important health care is, how important our first responders [are], our transportation system it may take a little bit longer to do the same amount of instruction, but we should be able to accomplish that."
The school will also be offering more than 20 fully online courses. They plan to follow the same safety guidelines for the summer semester, which begins on June 8.
