Inclement weather decisions at Montgomery College


Author: Mansi Gosalia, Editor-in-Chief

This winter season has brought considerable weather which has had the student body of Montgomery College on the edge of their seats. With even more extreme weather expected to hit on Wednesday, many are wondering how exactly Montgomery College goes about conducting inclement weather decisions.

A community wide email in regards to this issue was sent out February 18th by the Interim Senior Vice President for Administrative and Fiscal Services, Donna Schena. It details out the complex process of weather related decisions across three campuses.

Overall, the effort to make a sound decision is one that involves multiple departments across all campuses and even the help of third parties, such as the National Weather Service.

The decisions can be divided into four categories: a delay, an early release, full day cancellation, or a full day. In a delay, some classes will still meet if 50 minutes or more of the class can still occur. Also, in a delay, the parking lots and all buildings will open 30 minutes ahead of the delayed opening time.

When considering weather related decisions, Montgomery College consults the state of the roads, how public transportation is effected, and general safety of students and faculty.

    I must express appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this trouble. As a result of checking throughout the the net and obtaining advice which were not pleasant, I assumed my entire life was gone. Existing without the presence of strategies to the difficulties you’ve solved all through your report is a serious case, and ones that would have in a negative way damaged my career if I hadn’t discovered the website. Your own know-how and kindness in touching the whole lot was invaluable. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a stuff like this. I can at this moment look ahead to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this specialized and results-oriented help. I will not think twice to propose your web blog to anyone who ought to have counselling about this subject.

    *An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
