The following is an excerpt from the "Policy on Closure of the College Due to Adverse Weather and Other Conditions":
General Policy: When inclement weather prevails (ice, snow, or natural disaster) or other hazardous conditions exist, the President or President's designee will determine whether the college will be closed and/or what activities of the college will be canceled or postponed. It will be the President's responsibility to inform the appropriate communications networks regarding the college's closing. Announcements about the closing and re-opening of the college, cancellations or postponements of classes and other activities, and whether college personnel should report to work will be made over radio and television stations. Activities of the college will proceed as scheduled unless specifically announced otherwise. For the complete list of stations JSCC utilizes to disburse information, please review the Media Contact List (PDF).
The college will reschedule classes canceled because of inclement weather as necessary, according to guidelines below.
Curriculum Missed or Canceled Classes: Scheduled curriculum classes which are missed or not held for any reason, including inclement weather, are to be made up by giving an alternative assignment(s). These assignments are to be documented and on file in the appropriate Department Head's office area. When the missed or canceled classes exceed five in number, then the class(es) in excess of five must be rescheduled.
Continuing Education Missed or Canceled Classes: Missed or canceled classes will be made up (rescheduled) to the extent possible and the instructional contract modified to reflect a change in class ending date if required.
