The Central Arizona Valley Institute of Technology continues online classes and has postponed in-person learning until Oct. 13.
The decision was made Sept. 2 by the CAVIT Governing Board, according to a notice at cavitschools.com.
“The board will continue to re-evaluate if the Pinal County Health Department/Arizona Department of Health Services public health benchmarks in effect at that time warrant another postponement. Online learning will continue daily,” it states. “Safety mitigation procedures will be in place when we return on Oct. 13. We look forward to safely welcoming students back to in-person instruction and until then will be working hard to provide a quality learning experience for students in our online virtual learning environment.”
Online learning has been offered since the first day of class July 20. The Governing Board decided Aug. 6 to postpone in-person learning from Aug. 17 to Sept. 8, according to a Facebook post @cavitschool.
