WTI COVID-19 CAMPUS SAFETY GUIDELINES

WTI is currently re-opening our campuses to students as allowed by local, state, and CDC guidelines

The procedures listed below have been implemented to uphold CDC guidelines, promote safety, and to help prevent exposures to COVID-19 at WTI. The school also modified its instructional delivery and class schedules combining necessary in-person lab instruction with remote coursework to minimize the amount of time spent on campus and promote social distancing.

Procedures

This interim guidance is based on what is currently known about the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and relies on the CDC guidelines as set out in more detail at the CDC’s web page at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/. These guidelines may be updated from time to time as additional information becomes available.

Therefore, effective immediately, the following safety measures are mandatory for all persons (students, staff, and visitors) while on campus:

Moreover, as the safety of our students and staff is our top priority, WTI will take the necessary precautions to provide a safe and sanitized learning environment which includes:

Emergency Financial Aid Grants to Students Under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act

The U.S. Department of Education has provided Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students who need financial support for their expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to Coronavirus.

When appropriating the relief funds allotted to Wichita Technical Institute students, WTI considered the U.S. Department of Education’s calculation of Expected Family Contribution (EFC), expenses required for the program completion, cost of living and other financial factors before determining that to remain as fair and inclusive as possible the awards will be distributed in 2 phases:

PHASE 1 (May 2020) – WTI will divide 75% of the HEERF student portion evenly among all eligible students who were attending classes on the date the HEERF funding notification was received April 29, 2020.

Currently 624 WTI students are eligible for PHASE 1.

PHASE 2 (June 2020) – Due to the continuing disruption in May 2020 of campus operations caused by COVID-19, WTI plans to distribute the remaining 25% of the HEERF student portion to eligible students who began their program on May 4, 2020. Depending on funds available, WTI will disburse equal amounts based on the number of eligible students exhibiting need at that time. This amount may not be the same as awarded to PHASE 1 students.

Currently 212 WTI students are eligible for PHASE 2 (estimated).

All WTI students who receive the HEERF grant must be Title IV eligible and in good standing. They must also (by signed statement) certify they have had expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to COVID-19 and that the emergency funding received will be used for food, housing, course material, technology, health care and childcare.

 

April 10, 2020 Wichita Technical Institute signed and returned to the Department of Education the Certification and Agreement and the assurance that the institution intends to use no less than 50% of the funds received under Section 18004(a) (1) of the CARES Act to provide Emergency Financial Aid Grants to students. On 4/29/2020 WTI received the Grant Award Notification for the student portion of HEERF totaling $1,606,744.00. As of May 30, 2020, WTI has distributed $1,064,000.00 of the CARES Act HEERF student portion with each student receiving $2,000.00 each.

As of May 30, 2020, 532 Wichita Technical Institute students have received the CARES Act HEERF grant.
