Spring 2021 Semester Plan

Due to the surge of local COVID-19 cases and to ensure the safety of students and employees, Alamo Colleges will remain at Level 5 of the COVID Response plan through the end of the Spring 2021 semester.

For SAC, this means the following:

  • All employees will continue to work remotely.
  • Select workforce classes that have been meeting face-to-face on campus since January 19 will continue through the semester. 
  • On February 15, additional workforce classes that began remotely will return to the campus for face-to-face instruction. Even with the addition of these, we will remain at Level 5 and under 5 percent.
  • No other classes will return to campus this semester.
  • There will be no Student Success personnel or services onsite during this time.
  • All student support services will remain virtual.
  • We will continue to provide drive-through, curbside, and contactless essential services for the remainder of the semester. This will include pickup of Wi-Fi hotspots, books and laptops, and document drop-off.

The Alamo Colleges COVID-19 Incident Command Task Force will continue to meet regularly to monitor pandemic conditions and to make decisions on how we will transition to the summer semester. We will update you when we know more. As always, we will respond to the guidance of city, county, state, and CDC with safety as our foremost concern. 

 

 

Financial Help for Early Childhood Care

The early childhood program has funds from a Department of Education CCAMPIS grant to help pay for childcare for students with children from six-months to five-years.

Students enrolled in CTE programs can apply for the CCAMPIS grant to help pay for off-campus care at select accredited early childhood programs. Through the grant, parents enrolled in the program will only have to pay $15 - $20 per week for childcare. The grant is open to other SAC students with young children as well.

To remain eligible for the grant, students must complete these requirements:

  • Earn grades of C or higher in all courses 
  • Maintain enrollment in a minimum of nine credit hours 
  • Check ACES email on a daily basis 
  • Attend three scheduled parent workshops 
  • Meet with child’s teacher 
  • Complete four volunteer hours 
  • Meet all required deadlines for submitting documentation
