Kent ISD — Due to two of its staff people having been impacted by COVID-19, the Kent Career Tech Center has moved several of its programs to virtual/remote learning until Monday, Oct. 26.
The affected programs are Health Career Foundations, Medical Assisting, Diagnostics, Personal Care Technician/Nurse Tech, Sports Medicine, Pharmacy, and Graphic Arts.
“While we would prefer in-person instruction, due to the nature of our classes, it can be hard to find long-term (substitute) coverage for staff that is industry specific to the topics we cover,” Tech Center Principal Ryan Graham wrote in a letter to families. “Moving to remote instruction allows our staff to continue leading the curriculum while offsite, and as a team to support students.”
According to the Kent ISD COVID-19 dashboard, the Kent ISD Main Campus, located at 2930 Knapp St. NE, has had 14 student cases and two staff cases reported. In all the Kent ISD programs, there have been 25 COVID-19 cases reported.
