Factors School Districts Weigh For Closings And Delays

Posted: Updated:

There's a lot of interest from parents, students and teachers about school tomorrow. Many schools have yet to make that decision.

It's the superintendent's decision to delay or cancel school or even stop buses from running. The information is out of West Fargo's School District, but many look at the same factors. 

They check out the road conditions, visibilty, current and expected wind conditions. They also take into account the expected duration of a storm.

They look at families living in rural areas and the difficulties they face with commute time and unplowed roads. The superintendent likely will contact the weather experts, like those at Valley News Live, law enforcement agencies and road maintenance personnel. Most times a decision is reached no later than 6:30 in the morning.

We'll keep you posted on school delays and cancellations.
