    Welcome Back! 

    Greetings from Eastside Technical Center’s Homeland Security/Law Enforcement Pathway program.  I am Captain Lisa Rudzinski, and I am proud to be your teacher or this program.  

    It’s the beginning of a new school year, and even with these unusual circumstances,  the future holds infinite opportunities. To make sure you are all prepared for these opportunities to come, we are committed to providing the dynamic and engaging virtual instruction for every student with interactive lessons that will support all the learning of hands on application. 

    I hope that your summer was relaxing, filled with adventures and good health because you deserve it.  The opportunity to refuel over the summer is so important to being mentally prepared for all the challenged Eastside is prepared to bring you.  I know that we are about to begin a great school year filled with exploration, vision, and ingenuity, and we will not allow COVID to be a barrier to providing the same high quality learning environment that we always have.  As we begin this new year, I wish everyone the greatest success and want to let you know that we are here to support you.

    To provide a few details on what to expect with virtual instruction in our course:

    1. Eastside will utilize CANVAS as our online (virtual) learning platform.
    2. Our Homeland Security/Law Enforcement Program Pathway courses will include a mix of live ZOOM class instruction and electronic course activities.
    3. All work for each course a student is enrolled in will be organized weekly, with all assignments and activities for the week posted by 8:00 AM on Monday mornings and due no later than 7:00 PM the following Sunday.
    4. I will have office hours once our final calendar and daily schedules are complete. 
    5. Should you be receiving this communication in error, please let us know so that we may update our school records and confirm enrollment.
