Policies - Progressive Directions, Inc.
It is the policy of Progressive Directions, Inc. that special procedures will be followed in the case of local school systems being closed due to weather conditions in any county within our catchment area to ensure the safety of our individuals and staff.
When local school systems are closed due to weather conditions in any county within our catchment area the PDI site in that county will not open until 9:00 a.m. However the staff will be expected to arrive as soon as it is safe to do so.
All agency transportation will be cancelled on these days unless the Executive Director deems the roads safe. This does not mean that the centers will be closed it only means that transportation services will not operate on their regular schedule.
By 1:00 p.m. the Executive Director will make a final determination in projecting the safety of the roads at 3:00 p.m. If in his estimation the roads will be unsafe at 3:00 p.m. he will announce by 1:00 p.m. that the center will close.
Staffs who have been assigned to alternate residential locations are expected to report to those residential sites. If, due to weather conditions, staff are unable to report to the residential site to which they have been assigned, it is their responsibility to contact their supervisor
Staffs who are scheduled to report to the workshop will utilize days when no individuals come to the center as training and in-service days.
Staffs who have reported to the workshop may be redirected to the residential facilities if the staff scheduled to cover the residential consumers are unable to get to the residential sites.
