TCSJ's Response to COVID-19
Effective 1/9/2024

Teachers College of San Joaquin (TCSJ) and the San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE) adhere to the instructions provided by local, state, and federal public health authorities in managing confirmed cases of the coronavirus among students, faculty, and staff members. The SJCOE maintains consistent communication with the San Joaquin County Public Health Services (SJCPHS) and has established protocols that guarantee swift and resolute communication and measures whenever necessary. Our choices are driven by our commitment to the safety and well-being of everyone on campus, as well as our objective of delivering a high-quality educational experience to our students.

As we prioritize the well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and the community, we want to draw your attention to the latest protocol. It's important to review these details before coming to a TCSJ campus (Stockton or Ceres).
