Our WLC coordinators are working with local schools, businesses, and Kirkwood Community College to provide appropriate work-based learning support to students and educators. WLC will continue to follow the COVID-19 guidelines from Kirkwood Community College, but reserves the right to add additional guidelines at the request of our business hosts. Changes to those guidelines may affect work-based learning activities or programs, potentially causing them to be transitioned to a virtual format or subject to change or cancellation. Students who visit businesses requiring masks will be required to provide their own.
