Education Week--Districts Grapple With Closure Decisions In Wake of 'Bomb Cyclone' Storm
A giant winter storm swept through the East Coast this week, blanketing parts of Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina with snow for the first time in decades and bringing blizzard warnings and major school disruptions from Rhode Island to Maine.
In school districts from New England through the Deep South, the upheaval forced K-12 systems to make quick decisions, with top administrators coordinating decisions internally and then working in tandem with outside community agencies.
The "bomb cyclone" battered Southern cities and counties that normally don't get so much as a snow flurry, as well as northeastern communities accustomed to deep snow drifts.
