With the "Stay at Home" Order issued by Governor Bill Lee on April 2, 2020, TCAT Hohenwald will be continuing all online studies for all technical programs at this time. Where we had anticipated integrating some small groups over the next couple of weeks to finish out the trimester, all groups are cancelled at this time due to the “Stay at Home” Order. If the COVID-19 circumstances change and the order is lifted, instructors will contact students to arrange staggered integration of lab/shop. The trimester is scheduled to end April 24, 2020.
Student safety, as well as the safety of our faculty and staff, continues to be a priority. As much as we (Faculty& Staff) would hope students could return to campus, online options continue to be the best approach to finish the trimester and assist with flattening the COVID-19 curve.
It is important to note, all online training does have the approval of the Tennessee Board of Regents and our accrediting body, the Council on Occupational Education (COE). Online has offered many different options of instruction with D2L and MicroSoft Teams, as well a MindTap with Milady, along with some others. Communication in the online environment is key! Stay in touch with instructors and be self-disciplined for better online experience.
If any students need assistance, all faculty and staff are available by phone or email. A listing of all TCAT personnel may be found on our website. Appointments, if necessary, may be made on a rotational and staggered basis. For more information and assistance, call (931) 796-5351 and leave a message.
As Stay Home is in effect, please continue to take all CDC health precautions to include proper hand-washing, social distancing, staying away from those who are not feeling well---and certainly do your best to stay home!
The sooner the curve flattens, the sooner TCAT returns to normal. Let’s help flatten the curve!
