System Outage Update 4/28/23

Happy Friday! 

I hope you have been able to take a little time out of your day today to enjoy the sunshine. It is certainly beautiful around campus. If you haven’t stepped outside today, take a look at the latest post on Shoreline’s Instagram page to see the campus in full bloom.

Today I have a couple of updates for you from Technology Support Services (TSS) and on accreditation. 

First, I want to thank you all for your patience and flexibility during this time. We are making great progress getting things back online, but we know that everyone has had to work very hard to make adjustments to instruction, and operations.  We truly appreciate your efforts. 


As TSS continues to forge ahead with restoration efforts they would like to remind you to continue to fill out the file recovery request form which can be found here. They are in the final testing stage and hope to begin working with individual computers as early as the end of next week. Please remember this request form is not to ask for files on the network drives (e.g. S, X etc.) but instead for things you might have saved on your individual computer. 


Due to the effect of the ransomware incident on accreditation work, the following deadlines have been extended and timelines adjusted: 

  • All Area Reviews are now due Friday, June 16, 2023 – the last day of spring quarter. The April 24th deadline for Area Reviews was extended. 
  • Next year’s (2023-24) budget now will be developed two months later, as approved by the Board of Trustees at their April 26, 2023 meeting. A draft budget will be reviewed by the Board in August; it will be shared with the Strategic Planning & Budget Council during Opening Week, when faculty are back on contract. A final budget will be presented to the Board for approval in September. 
  • Since Area Reviews will inform resource allocation (budget development), that timeline has been updated.  
  • The Fall 2023 (October 5-6) Accreditation Mid-Cycle visit has been approved by the Northwest Commission on Colleges & Universities (NWCCU) to be delayed to spring 2024.  

Enjoy your weekend!
