Weather Notice

Huntsville City Schools will operate on a 2-hour delay on Tuesday, November 12, 2019.  The two-hour delay will also apply to all HCS employees, unless otherwise directed by your supervisor.  The current forecast does not call for accumulations of winter-like precipitation, but does include a significant wind chill.  The delay will allow time for conditional improvements to ensure safe travel and improved conditions for our buses, students, and staff. 


All elementary, middle, and junior high classes will begin at 10:00am.  All high school classes will begin at 10:30am.  Buses will also run on a two-hour delayed schedule. 


The HCS Weather Safety Team will work in conjunction with the EMA and other local agencies to monitor conditions and send out updates should any additional changes be necessary.  For more information about the weather safety decision process, please select the more information link below.

Procedure for Complaint Submission






This document sets forth the process for resolving complaints presented by individuals or organizations to the Alabama State Department of Education (SDE). Such complaints may include information on how a school district, the SDE, or other entity has violated a federal law, rule, or regulation applicable to any “covered federal programs."


Note: Before submitting a complaint about a school or school district, the SDE requires that all complainants first complete the grievance procedures established by the Local Education Agency (LEA), if applicable. This may involve contacting the local school district, expressing concerns to the appropriate board employee, and receiving information on how to proceed.


Exception: As stated in NCLB Section 1120(b)(5) related to Private Schools and timely, meaningful consultations with LEAs, non-public school officials may apply for complaint relief directly to the SDE. This citation continues with the procedure, "Upon receipt of the formal written complaint, the SDE will notify the LEA of the complaint and request appropriate documentation."



The procedures for resolving written complaints satisfy 20 USC 7844(3)(C) and 20 USC 7883 (Section 9503)(a-b), and offer parents and other stakeholders concerned with the appropriate delivery of services to children a simple, straightforward method for considering their claims of inappropriate action.
