A Message to Our Stakeholders and Friends
Dear Academy Partner,
Based on the California State University System’s decision to have the Fall semester be delivered in virtual format, and in response to input from our stakeholders, the Academy has determined that we will continue delivering all services in virtual format through December 31, 2020. Our staff have worked tirelessly these past two months to transform our service delivery system from primarily in-person delivery, to exclusively virtual delivery in response to the requests of our partners and in light of the ongoing gathering restrictions put in place by our state and local public health officials. Our Academy programs are continuing to work closely with each of their respective stakeholders to assess their evolving needs so that we can provide services that are responsive and timely.
As we have new information that impacts our service deliveries and work environment, we will continue to share real-time updates with you so that you can plan accordingly. We are continuing to post on our website COVID-19 Resources that are relevant to the Health and Human Services community. We are here to support you throughout this public health crisis and our recovery from it. Please continue to let us know how we can best support you, your agency, and your staff during this challenging time.
Please stay safe and be well.
