FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO):  Three of Allen County’s four school districts pushed back the beginning of class Wednesday because of the bitter cold, however that was not the case for Fort Wayne Community Schools.

Students within FWCS reported to class on time Wednesday morning, amid the bitter cold temperatures experienced across the area. District leaders across the county were faced with the difficult decision as Fort Wayne set a record low for January 26 at -9 degrees Fahrenheit. FWCS Spokesperson Krista Stockman told our partners in news at ABC21 that district leaders felt it was the best decision not to delay class and that she understands some parents were not happy about the decision.

While FWCS ran on schedule, Northwest Allen, Southwest Allen and East Allen County schools all opted for a two hour delay.

Yea and ask them how many students was at school Wednesday because of their poor decision. They are all about the money with these kids they where told to make sure these kids stay in school so they can get the money.These kids don’t get taught anything at school all they get taught is behavioral issues none academic FWCS is a joke the students that has good academics is because of us parents staying on them to succeed. They just baby sit for 71/2 hours and during parent teacher conference you just get told how well or the behavior issues and only 30% is about grades. Let’s not talk about the people they are hiring at the schools that are down low mistreating the kids.
