Important MessageATTENTION FACULTY!

♦ Do you frequently merge two or more sections of the same class in Canvas?  The WA Attorney General’s office recently ruled that many Canvas section merges are not FERPA compliant As a result, BC will limit merges to those sections of a class that must be taught together (for example, SPAN 221/222/223). You can find more information at the Bellevue College eLEARNING web site.
