LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - With a Winter Storm Watch in effect until Saturday afternoon plans are being put in place in the event faculty and staff at Texas Tech would have to reschedule a final exam.

Exams are scheduled to start on Friday and the university has released a memorandum from the Office of President that said administration is preparing a plan to reschedule some final exams and provide Blackboard support resources for online exams.

“Should a reschedule of any final exams be necessary due to weather conditions, faculty and students will be notified late Thursday evening or Friday morning,” Lawrence Schovanec wrote in the university-wide memo.

The storm watch that is put into effect Thursday is expected to become a warning. Ice and snow are possible throughout this weekend and may begin on Friday.
