Instructional Delivery Guidelines

Update

Week of March 22

The Oklahoma State School Boards Association COVID-19 map shows Payne County is in yellow today. For the week of March 22 after spring break, Meridian will begin five day in-person instruction. All students are expected to attend class on campus. We look forward to welcoming you back full time.

Meridian has 10 partner schools whose students attend classes on our campus. Those schools cover five counties. The status of those counties will also be considered and may factor into our decision-making as we work to keep the risk of the transmission of COVID-19 as low as possible. We are also working closely with the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

We continue to ask students, staff and visitors to follow social distancing protocols and the city of Stillwater’s face covering ordinance requiring coverings in public spaces and educational institutions. In addition, the following health and safety precautions at this link are still in effect.

Thank you,

Week of March 1

Good afternoon,

We wanted to communicate with you as we continue to monitor the Oklahoma State School Boards Association COVID-19 map, which is showing a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases. For next week Meridian plans to continue with the blended learning format we have been observing. This will allow Meridian instructors time to prepare for students to return to campus the following week, should the map continue to reflect a decrease in the number of cases.

The number of days students would be on campus will depend on a couple of factors that includes the number of cases in Payne County. Meridian has 10 partner schools whose students attend classes on our campus. Those schools cover five counties. The status of those counties will also be considered and may factor into our decision-making as we work to keep the risk of the transmission of COVID-19 as low as possible. We are also working closely with the Oklahoma State Department of Health.

Instructional Delivery Guidelines

At their November 3 meeting, the Meridian Technology Center Board of Education approved revised instructional delivery guidelines related to COVID-19. Those guidelines can be found below. The guidelines take into consideration the COVID-19 map from the Oklahoma State School Boards Association. 

For students to be able to achieve their career objective, access to hands-on equipment and technology is key. We will continue to monitor the map, which is updated each Friday, knowing it could impact the delivery of instruction on the Meridian campus. If there is a change in status, we will notify you of how it will impact instructional delivery. 

Please check this web page for updates.

Our team meets regularly and is adapting as needed. The safety of our students and staff is at the forefront of our decisions and may require unforeseen adjustments to be made. We will continue to communicate via email, text messages and through our website as necessary.
