The Media School's restart plan reflects the principles and parameters set out in IU’s remote work policy for staff and the health and safety guidance in the Restart Committee recommendations for fall 2021.
The staff restart will follow a phased model:
- Beginning the week of June 21, Media School staff are expected to work on campus at least one day per week.
- Beginning the week of July 19, Media School staff are expected to work on campus at least two days per week.
- Beginning the week of Aug. 2, Media School staff will resume full-time, on-campus work, as normal operations resume under the fall 2021 IU restart plan.
In addition, vacation and PTO requests that have already been approved will still be honored, and supervisors may approve additional time off if doing so doesn’t hinder the resumption of normal operations for fall. However, per past practice, vacation time and PTO will not be approved for Welcome Week, Aug. 16-20, and the first week of the fall semester, Aug. 23-27, barring exceptional circumstances.
Staff should communicate and coordinate with supervisors regarding the schedule for on-campus work days in June and July. During that ramp-up period, immediately report any needs and requests you have in terms of your workspace, technology, supplies and the like, so there is appropriate time to address them.
Masks are still required through July in accordance with IU guidance on masks and PPE.
