Emanuele Calianno, Editor-in-Chief

BCC has delayed the reopening of on-campus courses until September 21st, according to an official statement by the college. The decision was made by the Board of Trustees this evening, coming one day prior to the start of classes. 

In an internal email to the faculty on September 1, the Board cited a need for further detail on the college’s reopening plan. Online instruction will still begin as regularly scheduled, along with the online component of live classes. 

Dr. Alan Kaufman, who sits on the college’s reopening committee, said he was not aware of the decision until September 2nd, when he read the email.

The Board did not meet in a public session on September 2, although meetings are typically scheduled on the first Tuesday of the month. A public meeting will be held via WebEx on September 8.
