INDIANA SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED
In the event of severe weather that would threaten the safety of students, staff, and school transportation personnel, and consistent with decisions made in surrounding metropolitan school districts, it is the policy of the Indiana School for the Blind and Visually Impaired Board to authorize the ISBVI Superintendent, in collaboration with the ISD Superintendent, to cancel school programs and services. Other essential ISBVI agency functions may remain open to conduct business; maintain heating; care for students in residence; provide security; or perform other critical operational responsibilities. State policy authorizes only the State Personnel Director to close an agency.
The ISBVI Board directs the ISBVI Superintendent to:
1) Develop ISBVI Administrative Directives and Procedures to implement the ISBVI Board Policy on Closing of School Services and Programs to clearly delineate and detail responsibilities, procedures, and school closing decision making criteria.
2) Afford initial and periodic on-going training to ISBVI staff, contractor and volunteers on the ISBVI Policy on Closing of School Services and Programs and accompanying ISBVI Administrative Directives and Procedures.
3) Provide ISBVI staff, contractors, and volunteers written notice and documenting their awareness and receipt of these documents by obtaining their signatures;
