Discussing Davenport School's Snow Day Decision


Many people were upset with Davenport School District's decision not to cancel class because of the weather on Tuesday, March 5, 2013.

KWQC spoke with parents and interviewed Davenport Superintendent, Dr. Arthur Tate about the decision.

We'll show you what they had to say, tonight on KWQC-TV6 and on kwqc.com

From the Davenport Community School District's Facebook page:

The Davenport Community School District uses a deliberate process to makes decisions on closing schools due to weather events. The most important consideration is the safety of our students and staff. We also want to give our families as much notice as possible to allow them time to make childcare arrangements if school is closed. Our administration begins the decision-making process at 3:30 a.m. by driving city and county roads. This is followed by contacts with Scott County road crews, the National Weather Service, and Frese Notis, a weather service in Des Moines, for updated information. Due to the size of our district we must make a decision between 5 and 5:30 a.m.
We have been watching weather conditions closely and Superintendent Tate has just notified us there will be a two hour early release today.
