Chapter 3 - Educational

3.30.4 Interactive Television Inclement Weather

Due to the large geographical area covered by Minnesota West Community & Technical College, campuses participating in Distance Learning Classes using Interactive Television may not be experiencing inclement weather at the same time. The following policy will be in effect for all Interactive Television classes at the five Minnesota West campuses.

The “host” site is defined as the location where the instructor teaches from. The “receive” site is all other campuses participating in the class.

If the “host “ site has been closed due to weather - the class will be considered cancelled at all sites.

If the “host” site has not been closed but one or more of the receive sites has been closed, the decision to cancel the class will be made by a consultation of the Campus Deans at each campus involved in the class, on a case by case basis using the following criteria:

  1. Student numbers at each campus participating in the class.
  2. Instructor’s desire to proceed with the class material
  3. Current weather progression
  4. Administration’s concern for student’s safety
