The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed by Congress and signed into law to provide economic relief from COVID-19. One section of the CARES Act established the Higher Education Emergency Relief fund and sent money to schools to use for emergency financial aid grants to students for expenses related to the disruption of campus operations due to the pandemic.

VCC Drug free and Work Place Policy 2021-2022

The following Drug-Free School & Workplace Policy is to notify all students and staff that pursuant to the Federal Drug-Free WorkplaceAct of 1988 (PublicLaw 101-690) and (California Drug-Free WorkplaceAct of 1990), VICTORY CAREER COLLEGE prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of a controlled substance in the workplace, on school property, or as part of any school activity.

VICTORY CAREER COLLEGE similarly prohibits the unlawful use, possession, and distribution of alcohol in the workplace, on school property, or as part of any school activity, as well as any other unlawful conduct involving alcohol.

VACCINATION POLICY:

As of March 12th, 2022, it is strongly recommended that every one wear a mask in school irrespective of the vaccination status. If a student or member of this institution brings proof of vaccination, that person may be mask-less indoor unless required otherwise by a staff or faculty member ( meeting, proximity, demo, service, etc…)

As of 11/4/2021 We require all new students/new employees to be vaccinated. Once a mandate is put in place, we will have to follow county, CA State or US Federal guidelines for the current enrollees/employees. City of Los Angeles’s Ordinance is mandating that all service patrons/clients bring government ID & Covid-19 vaccination proof. For other vaccinations, we do not have a policy but all students must have their required vaccinations up to date and it is the student’s responsibility to maintain their vaccination schedule.

Students whose eligibility has been suspended due to a drug conviction may resume eligibility if they successfully pass two (2) unannounced drug tests conducted by a drug rehabilitation program that complies with criteria established under HEA Sec. 484(r)(2) (20 U.S.C. 1091(r)(2).
