Virtual information sessions to highlight annual Kern County College Night on Sept. 14
August 29, 2020
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Kern County College Night — which annually attracts representatives from 100 colleges and universities and nearly 10,000 students and parents — will be held virtually this year on Monday, Sept. 14 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event has been copresented by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools and the Kern High School District for the past 20 years.
Prerecorded information sessions in English and Spanish on a variety of topics related to college readiness will be available to students and parents online through Canvas, with a live question and answer period following each session. A schedule of information session topics, times for live question and answer periods, and how to access the virtual event will be released by Sept. 1, 2020.
In lieu of information on specific colleges and universities, the Kern College Night organizing committee is working with schools that would normally attend the event to acquire promotional video materials and virtual campus tours. Those resources will be uploaded to the event’s YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7FdgF8jy5lCRKdJFmLaBaA and also promoted on Facebook at
@KCCollegeNight as they are compiled.
