Scheduled meetings take place beginning at 4:30 p.m. the day before expected weather is to arrive. The Fulton County Schools Transportation Department makes contact with various safety organizations to get initial information about weather conditions and the possible effects on roads and schools. A final decision to close schools is made no later than 6 a.m. the following day.
Radio and television stations get contacted by the Fulton County Schools Communications Department as soon as the superintendent makes a decision. The information is then posted to the school system's website, Twitter, which you can follow at @FultonCountySchools, and on the school Facebook account. Individual school's Facebook and Twitter accounts can provide more specific information.
WSB radio at 750 on the AM dial also broadcast lists of closings.
