Inclement Weather Policy
ODTC will make an effort to ensure that students receive the number of classes
advertised in the course catalogue. However, it may be necessary to cancel classes at
times due to unforeseen circumstances, such as weather. ODTC classes will be
cancelled when Baltimore County schools are closed for the day due to inclement
weather or if they have an early dismissal due to snow, sleet, high winds, etc. (not heat).
If an instructor believes that the schools have been over cautious in closing and wishes to
hold classes, they may discuss this with the respective training director and if they agree
to hold class, contact the students to advise them. Instructors will attempt to schedule
make up sessions for any classes cancelled, keeping in mind that if there are a large
number of cancellations, rescheduling may not be possible before the start of the next
session. ODTC does not have a heat cancellation policy. Instructors who believe that
the heat is so excessive as to create an unsafe situation, may cancel class by contacting
their respective students.
