REMOTE LEARNING REMINDER
Hello, CECI Community.

I wanted to take a moment to remind everyone about Colorado Early Colleges Inverness’ student remote learning option.

Please understand that the only remote learning environment available for our students and families is the Extended Remote Learning option (see below for description and enrollment directions). The Short-term remote option is no longer.

Families and students are still trying to participate in the short-term environment. If your student attends the short-term remote learning environment, they will be marked absent. If you need a remote option, please review the extended option and complete the waiver.

Definition and Procedures for the Extended RLE

Definition of Extended RLE: Student is attending the RLE for more than 4 days.
If your family is looking to attend CECI’s Extended RLE, on and after 1/19, you will need to follow these instructions:
  1. Complete this FORM.
  2. Once CECI receives the completed form, the HoS will review the form to determine approval.
  3. If approved, CECI will notify your family as well as all instructors that the particular student has been approved to attend the Extended RLE.

Thanks for your understanding and help in this matter,
Dr. Egger

OFF CAMPUS STUDENT REMINDERS
Important Testing Reminder!
If you are taking classes off campus, please email or hand-in this letter to all of your off campus college professors.

Important! Withdraw Deadlines for Off-campus students 
Withdrawing from a class means that you will receive a W on your transcript and the course will not count as part of your GPA. This can be useful if you know you will receive a D or an F for the class, but you want to protect your overall GPA. It still means you are financially responsible for the class and will have to reimburse CEC for tuition and fees. 

If you think you need to withdraw from a class, please contact your CEC Academic Advisor immediately. Below are the withdraw deadlines for regular 15-week semester classes. Always check your class syllabus for the most accurate withdraw deadline. 
ACC: April 15 
RRCC: April 19 
CCA: April 19 
CCD: April 19
