The day's winter storm is forcing the cancellation of a meeting on unaccredited districts.
The hearing has been rescheduled for Wednesday from 6:30 - 8 PM at the UMSL JcPenny Conference Center. The meeting is being held so that state education officails can gather data as they look to craft a plan to aid and support failing school districts.
The public is invited to attend the hearing, and make comments. Comments will be limited to three minutes, and you must sign-up to make any comments. You can register here.
Missouri Department of Transportation officials are advising Missourians to stay home during tomorrow's storm and have issued a "no travel advisory".
In a release, MoDOT says that once the storm arrives, travel will quickly become dangerous. A MoDOT engineer says that once the snow starts falling, it will be easier for plows to clear roads if there are fewer vehicles on the streets. This storm is expected to shape up much like heavy snow that fell last year.
MoDOT officials say the problems on roads were compounded last year when employers sent workers home early--the additional cars slowed traffic in many areas to a standstill.
