There will be some exceptions for courses/labs in the healthcare and emergency services fields, as well as in STEM, career education, and other select areas. However, even these courses will be in hybrid format with lectures online and only necessary labs being done in-person. Specific courses will be determined in the coming weeks and your instructor will communicate with you about the details.

Working from Home Guidelines

The District’s goal is to ensure that all essential District operations are maintained during COVID-19 with most employees working remotely and a limited number on-site. Realizing that under these new operating parameters employees working remotely will have questions and needs regarding their new remote worksites, the District has prepared these guidelines.

Employee Work Expectations

We have asked supervisors to be accommodating, flexible, patient, and understanding, however employees are reminded of work expectations while working remotely.

  • Check District-related email, telephone, or other designated communication methods on a consistent basis as if the employee were working at their regularly assigned college/District work site.
  • Adhere to professionalism, productivity, performance, communication, timeliness of assignments, and responsiveness standards, and to comply with all District (as well as their program/department) policies and procedures.
  • Classified employees are expected to adhere to their assigned work schedule. Changes to the work schedule or requests for overtime require prior approval in accordance with the procedures established by their supervisor. Requests for sick, vacation, and other leaves of absence shall be made in accordance with established department/program procedures.

Safety Standards

  • The employee confirms that they have a suitable place to work remotely and that to the best of their knowledge the workplace is safe from conditions that could pose a hazard to health and safety or danger to District-owned equipment.
  • Comply with all District policies and standards for safeguarding and protecting any confidential business information, personally identifiable information, and all other sensitive information they possess. The employee shall ensure confidential, personally identifiable, and all other sensitive information discussed via any form of communication is conducted in a manner consistent with District policies and procedures and protects the information from unauthorized disclosure.

Ergonomics

Most remote worksite needs can be addressed by making adjustments to a workspace. See Working from Home ergonomics presentation. If these adjustments do not address workspace needs, an ergonomic assessment may be recommended. Prior to an ergonomic assessment, the following steps should be taken.

  • The employee shall discuss ergonomic needs to work remotely with their supervisor prior to having Human Resources assess the need.
  • The employee will need to complete the Working from Home Ergonomics Assessment Request Form. A Human Resources representative will contact the employee to conduct a virtual workplace assessment and determine the need.

Technology and Equipment

  • The employee and the supervisor shall determine the minimum equipment and software necessary for the employee to complete assignments from the remote worksite in a timely, efficient, and professional manner.
  • In determining which equipment (if any) shall be provided by the District/college, the Department/Division shall consider appropriateness and availability. If bringing office equipment home and/or ordering equipment is approved, the employee must complete the District Property Loan Agreement. Please note Facilities is not able to assist employees bringing office equipment home, and ITS is only able to support remote installations. The employee is required to return any District property upon request after working remotely is completed.
  • The Department/Division will maintain all equipment owned by the District. The employee will not perform maintenance or repairs on District-owned equipment.
  • The employee is responsible for service costs, maintenance, and repairs of employee-owned equipment.
  • Only District-owned software may be installed on District-owned equipment. The employee may not install or download any other software to District-owned equipment without supervisor approval.
  • The employee shall never purchase or rent equipment, services or supplies on the assumption the Department/Division shall reimburse for the cost. Department/Division prior approval must be obtained prior to any expense incurred. In general, the employee is responsible for ongoing operating costs, such as telephone (mobile and landline) service fees, mobile phone data plans, internet fees, utility costs, and equipment rental fees, however for expenses incurred to be able to complete assignments may be reimbursable if prior approval is obtained and expenses can be verified.
  • The Colleges/District Office will supply the employee with appropriate office supplies to complete assignments. The employee should check in with their supervisor on how to request office supplies.

Students: Let us know what your student housing needs are!

Dear Cañada, CSM and Skyline Students,

San Mateo County Community College (SMCCCD) has partnered with The Scion Group, a national consulting services firm specializing in college housing, to determine interest and demand for student housing.  This survey is an essential aspect of this process – your feedback matters! 

As part of our analysis, Scion created a survey designed to gain your feedback on housing, including floor plans, rates and amenities.  Please take the survey here.   

This survey is confidential, and responses will be analyzed and reported such that the identity of survey respondents is protected. You must be a current student at College of San Mateo, Cañada College or Skyline College to take the survey and, of course, taking it is voluntary.  

Most individuals complete the survey in less than 15 minutes. Take the survey here.

To show our appreciation for you taking the time to complete the survey, respondents will be entered in a drawing to receive a $250 gift card to the campus bookstore.  Three gift cards will be awarded.

Thank you for completing this short survey and sharing your comments with us, even if you do not anticipate taking advantage of such opportunities. Your feedback matters!

Sincerely,

Mitchell Bailey
Vice Chancellor/Chief of Staff
Office of the Chancellor

SMCCCD Social Distancing Protocols for Employees On Campus

To All SMCCCD Employees:

San Mateo County Health has ordered employers, including the San Mateo County Community College District, to distribute formal social distancing protocols to all employees. These protocols apply to any employee on District property, including the three college campuses and the District Office. This applies to all District employees currently required to work onsite, and will apply to all employees who return to work onsite in the coming months. Please read and keep a copy of these social distancing protocols.

There are five basic rules for social distancing at work:

  1. Do not enter District property if you have COVID-19 symptoms
  2. Maintain a minimum six-foot distance from other people
  3. Sneeze and cough into a cloth or tissue, or into your elbow
  4. Wear a face covering
  5. Do not shake hands or engage in unnecessary physical contact

These procedures are legally mandated by the San Mateo County Health Officer.

Currently, working-from-home remains in effect for most District employees due to the shelter-in-place order in San Mateo County. That order is in effect through May 2020 and may be extended. No decision has been made when to begin recovery back to normal business operations, but the SMCCCD Emergency Operations Center is developing protocols that will be used to restore operations in a safe and responsible way. Those protocols will be communicated with all employees before we begin to return to working onsite.

For all the latest information, visit the District COVID-19 information hub.

Summer Is Officially Online

In consultation with the Board of Trustees and District Academic Senate, Chancellor Claire and the college presidents have determined that the Summer 2020 term will be delivered in online/distance education format. The decision is made in light of the strong likelihood local shelter-in-place restrictions will limit or prevent a return to normal campus operations over the summer. There may be very limited exceptions for some programs and those will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. 

Faculty who have questions about the online summer session or need access to campus should contact their dean.

Students were notified of the change in an April 27 email and text announcement, encouraging them to sign up for online summer classes and to consult a counselor with any questions.

Working from Home Remains in Effect Through May 2020

Working from home will remain in effect for all employees except those who have been notified that they are essential workers who must be onsite. The District will continue to monitor local shelter-in-place restrictions to determine when to begin working again on District property.

Please note that any employees required to be on District property must wear face coverings while on any of our campuses or at the District Office.

Employees who have questions or concerns about working from home should consult with their supervisor.

Worried About Zoom Bombing? Download Zoom 5.0!

Zoom has released new security features on its latest update:

1. Quick reporting for Zoombombing. There have been reports of trolls crashing Zoom video calls. Should a host need to deal with this issue, Zoom has made it easier to boot out unwanted invaders with a new “report user” button.

2. Easy navigation. The Zoom 5.0 update will optimize its user interface so hosts no longer have to rummage through the site to find security options. Zoom will now feature a new easy-access button on the host’s meeting menu bar. You can use it to lock meetings, restrict screen sharing and remove participants.

3. Default waiting room. The existing waiting room feature on Zoom allows hosts to keep guests in a virtual waiting room. When a guest enters the waiting room, the host is then notified and prompted to approve him or her. This feature will now be on by default.

4. Default meeting passwords. Generating a password for guests to enter a Zoom call will now be a default feature on the video conferencing platform. Accessing recorded meetings on the cloud will also require a password by default.

5Shrouding your notifications. With the Zoom 5.0 update, hosts can opt to veil their Zoom Chat notifications from nosey participants.

6. 256-bit AES-GCM encryption. In layman’s terms, this means Zoom will encrypt your data with a 256-bit key to prevent internet intruders from deciphering your personal information. The means your data in cloud will be even more secure.

7. Manage Participants. change the settings so that only people who are signed-in to their account with the email they were invited to the call through can join the call.

8. Lock Meetings. Lock the meeting after everyone you want there is there, that way no new people can join.

9. File Transfers. Turn off file transfers, private chat & annotations.

Remember as the host you can disable the camera & mute certain participants, permanently or temporarily if needed, you can also remove them. Using Waiting room feature to help control who comes & who goes, don’t let unexpected guest in. 

Additional information about the new version can be found here.
