BECKLEY HEC INCLEMENT WEATHER SCHEDULE
The Following inclement weather schedule is for the Higher Education Center Concord Beckley Campus:
The following is the inclement weather schedule for IVN courses in Beckley at the HEC.
Individual instructors will establish inclement weather meeting times if a class does not meet at one of the regular times noted above.
In inclement weather situations, Final Exams will begin two hours later than the regularly scheduled starting time.
OFF-CAMPUS CLASSES: are not necessarily affected by late schedule changes on the main campus. Students should assume that classes WILL meet unless they hear from their instructor, or the electronic media, that the class is called off.
THE UNIVERSITY ENCOURAGES ITS EMPLOYEES AND STUDENTS TO USE THEIR DISCRETION TO ENSURE THEIR SAFETY IN ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS.
Weather Policy from the Academic Catalog 2007-2009, Page 31
As a general policy the University will remain in normal operation during adverse weather conditions. In the event of severe weather conditions, the President may 1) place classes on inclement weather schedule; 2) cancel classes before the end of the class day; 3) cancel classes for an entire day or days; 4) close the University with approval of the West Virginia higher education system.
The Director of the Beckley Center will determine the status of off-campus classes in Raleigh County. When a decision to cancel classes is made, the media, faculty, and appropriate University offices will be notified.
(The few off-campus classes in sites OTHER THAN Raleigh County will not meet if the host site closes due to bad weather.)
The late schedule affects classes only. Other University operations are expected to follow their normal routines, although the University encourages its employees to use their discretion to ensure their safety in traveling on weather-affected roadways. Because the University does not wish to endanger the lives of faculty, students, or staff, it urges individuals to use their own best judgment in commuting to the campus in adverse or severe weather conditions.
Concord faculty are urged to make attendance policy considerations for the difficulties some commuting students may encounter due to weather conditions and provide opportunities to make up missed work. Students have an obligation to make every safe effort to attend classes, to initiate arrangements for making up missed work, and to understand the occasional commuting difficulties of faculty.
Announcements invoking the late schedule or other options referenced above will be aired on area radio and television stations. Take note that unless a cancellation announcement is made, classes will be held.
