ADTA’s COVID-19 Resources

ADTA Leadership has continuously monitored the COVID-19 pandemic and how it impacts our practitioners, educators, students and wider community. During the height of the global health crisis, the ADTA COA offered the following recommendations, resources, and accommodations to assist programs and alternate route in creatively supporting students and educators. Accommodations were in effect through the 2021-2022 Academic Year and are no longer applicable. Any long-term changes to programs or courses that are NOT a result of the pandemic must go through reapproval immediately. There is an understanding that fieldwork and internship hours accumulated in the 2019-2020 and 2020- 2021 academic periods may need to carry over to subsequent terms.
