Syllabus Checklist

The syllabus checklist includes all of the items that are required in your syllabus, as well as recommended and optional items.

COVID-19 Protocols 

Until we receive new guidance, the resources below will remain the same for future terms. 

Oregon OSHA still requires employers to notify employees who have had a potential work-related exposure to COVID-19, so we continue to use the COVID-19 Questionnaire for reporting. The college applies the same reporting/notification standard to our students.

Face masks are still provided in classrooms and through campuses and centers, and KN95 masks are available for anyone who requests them at Human Resources or at our information desks. While faculty cannot require masks be worn in their classrooms, as previously, faculty may still restrict any eating and drinking within their own classrooms. Chemeketa encourages vaccinations and booster shots, if one is physically able.

Students participating in in-person classes must adhere to Chemeketa’s protocols. Currently, masks are recommended, but not required to be worn indoors.


The college requires that all students and staff conduct a daily wellness assessment before coming on campus. Stay home if ill.  Notify your instructor and immediately fill out the COVID-19 Questionnaire if you believe you are experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms, if you have tested positive for COVID-19, or if you are awaiting results from a COVID-19 test.

The Emergency and Risk Management Team has created a script for faculty to read to students during the first in-person class session. The highlighted text may be updated to be applicable to your specific class. Feel free to make a copy of the file and edit for your own use.

Disclosure Statement for Recording Synchronous Instruction

Instructors should include the Disclosure Statement for Recording during Synchronous Instruction in their course syllabi.

With the switch to remote instruction in the spring of 2020 and the use of video conferencing for class meetings, syllabi need to include a disclosure statement alerting students to their right to not have their image, voice, questions or comments recorded.

Below is a sample disclosure statement to include in any syllabus for a course that will include recordings of remote class meetings:

I will be recording our class sessions and making the recording available on our course site on eLearn. This will be both an audio and a visual recording.

This means:

  1. if you participate with your video on or use a profile picture, you are agreeing to have your video and/or image recorded.
  2. if you participate by speaking, you are agreeing to have your voice recorded.
  3. if you participate by making comments in the chat feature, you are agreeing to have your name and comments recorded.

If you do not want your profile or video image recorded, turn off your video and remove your profile image. If you do not want your voice recorded, mute your microphone. If you do not want your name and comment(s) recorded, do not use the chat feature.

If you are unable to communicate with me during the class meeting due to your wish not to be recorded, please contact me to make other arrangements.
