With tonight’s weather forecast, administrators at Ballard County Schools again are discussing plans for bad weather.
As soon as a decision to close or delay school is made, the district has several pathways for letting parents and the public know, Superintendent Casey Allen said. Banners are placed on the district’s webpage at www.ballard.kyschools.us as soon as possible, and the closing is posted on the district Facebook page.
BCS also uses an automated messaging service, through its Infinite Campus student data service, that allows it to contact all families within minutes.
