Inclement Weather | ACTC

Inclement Weather


College policy is to remain open and conduct classes according to the regular class schedule except under extreme weather conditions. In the event of extreme weather, the college may be delayed, closed, or operate virtually. Every effort will be made to notify students, employees, and the public as quickly as possible regarding the operational status of the college. A decision to delay can be revised to closed or virtual depending on weather conditions. The decision to delay, close, or operate virtually will be the same for all three campus locations (College Drive, Roberts Drive, and Technology Drive). 


Notification of operational status will be communicated using the following methods: SNAP Alert message, website, phone system, selected radio and television stations, and college social media accounts. 

ACTC off-site locations

Dual credit high school sites

 The decision to close ACTC’s three campus locations does not affect classes offered at the college’s dual credit sites. If the respective high school closes due to inclement weather, then ACTC classes offered at that site are canceled.

Closed:  All classes are cancelled and offices closed.

Delayed: The college will open at 10:00 AM. Classes starting at 10:00 AM or later will meet as regularly scheduled. For classes with a start time prior to 10:00 AM, individual instructors will notify students of the expectation for class attendance on days the college implements a delayed opening. 

Virtual Learning and Workday: Classes will be held virtually. Individual instructors will notify students of class attendance expectations during a virtual learning day. Also, students should monitor their KCTCS email for instructions and contact their instructor for guidance. Employees should contact their supervisors for remote work assignments. 

ACTC recognizes that road conditions can vary significantly within our service area. Students and employees are to exercise personal judgment about whether travel is safe. Students who decide not to travel for class should notify their class instructors by means identified in the class syllabus. Employees who decide not to travel will notify their supervisor and follow KCTCS absence policies and procedures.
