Annual Kern County College Night moves to virtual format, Sept. 13
Kern County Superintendent of Schools
September 11, 2021
Kern County College Night, which was scheduled to return in-person this year, has been moved to a virtual event due to increasing COVID-19 case rates in our community. The event is hosted by the Kern County Superintendent of Schools office, in conjunction with the Kern High School District, and will take place on Sept. 13 from 4 to 7 p.m. The event may be accessed at kern.instructure.com/courses/54330 on the day of the event.
The College Night organizing committee is currently working with the colleges and universities that were scheduled to attend in-person to instead have representatives attend College Night via Zoom so that students and parents can learn more about each campus.
Live and pre-recorded information sessions in English and Spanish will be available on a variety of topics such as how to obtain financial aid, how to prepare if you want to be a college student athlete, how to write a personal statement, and how to decide which college is right for you. Students will also hear about why it’s important to take rigorous courses in high school, among much more.
The first breakout session for parents and students will begin promptly at 4 p.m., with the second session starting at 4:45 p.m. A third session will start at 5:30 p.m. A fourth session will start at 6:15 p.m. All sessions will be recorded and archived for later viewing for those who are unable to attend.
