Kent State Weather Advisory Statement - PLEASE READ
Statement by Todd A. Diacon, Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost and Gregg S. Floyd, Senior Vice President
- posted Monday, Nov. 17, 2014
Canceling Stark ClassesDuring inclement weather, Kent State Stark will take every step possible to determine safe driving conditions for its students. Unlike school districts which rely on the safety of school bus transportation, college campuses follow different guidelines when canceling classes which include current and future weather conditions and time of day.
In the event that a Kent State Stark cancels classes due to inclement weather or other emergency, university policy specifies that:
- Morning classes begin before 12 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- Afternoon classes begin after 12 p.m. Monday through Friday.
- Evening classes begin after 4:15 p.m. Monday through Friday.
For example, if your class begins at 3:30 p.m. and evening classes are canceled, you are still expected to attend your 3:30 p.m. class.
Assessing Weather ConditionsCampus administration and staff continually monitor road conditions throughout the day and evening to determine if classes are to be canceled or delayed. Students are responsible for assessing their own situation to determine if it is too hazardous to travel to campus. Furthermore, it is the student’s responsibility to contact their professor if they are unable to attend class due to inclement weather. Students are expected to understand their individual professor’s policies regarding class attendance as indicated on the course syllabus.
ContactQuestions regarding the campus's closing policy should be directed to the Dean's Office at 330-244-3211, located in 112 Main Hall.
Media AnnouncementsShould it be necessary to cancel all classes for any reason, cancellations will be announced via local radio and television stations. Announcements of class cancellations and/or campus closings will be made on the following stations:
