Board of Education Policy

Closing School

Policy No. # 205
Adopted: December 18, 2014


The superintendent is tasked with making necessary decisions regarding canceling classes and/or closing campuses during emergency circumstances. Such decisions will be based on all facts available at the time of the decision and will be publicized on the school’s website (, through the automated phone system, and on local news stations.

Daytime and Evening Classes

Except in exigent circumstances, decisions to cancel daytime classes or close the campus will be announced by 6:00 a.m. on the morning of the cancelation, and decisions to cancel evening classes or close the campus will be announced by 4:00 p.m. on the day of the cancelation.

Adult Education Classes (Short-Term), Industry Training, and Conference Center Events

Decisions to cancel these programs will be made independently of decisions regarding regular daytime and evening classes; however, no event will be permitted to be held if the superintendent has closed the campus. These decisions will be publicized in the same manner as other cancelations.
