Rescission of Board Policy 3507

COVID-19 Vaccination Interim Policy Effective July 3, 2023

(Summer Session 2023)

Dear Colleagues,

On Monday, April 3, 2023, the Board of Trustees approved the rescission of Board Policy 3507 COVID-19 Vaccination Interim Policy. Effective July 3, 2023, the first day of Summer 2023 Quarter, COVID-19 vaccinations will no longer be required at Foothill-De Anza Community College District. The lifting of the COVID-19 vaccination mandate applies to all faculty, staff, students, vendors, and visitors. Individuals will no longer need to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to access in person district programs and services. Please note the COVID-19 vaccination mandate will remain in place through July 2, 2023. 

The Foothill-De Anza Community College District is following current guidance from Santa Clara County and the California Department of Public Health. Employee COVID-19 Reporting information is available at the following website: District COVID-19 Testing and Isolation Protocol

If you have any questions, please contact Rocio Chavez at  

Please be advised that we accept that the COVID-19 vaccinations prevent severe illness and are proven safe and effective. Over 88% of Santa Clara County residents have completed the primary course of vaccinations.* 

Our Board rescission follows similar actions across the State and does not reflect a deviation from the recommendations of public health experts. The district encourages our community to stay current with their COVID-19 vaccinations, which includes getting boosters if eligible.
