After two snow days in a row, it was back to class Thursday for students in Fayette County.

27 NEWSFIRST rode along with transportation director John Kiser as he and other school administrators assessed road conditions.

Kiser says he and the others drive neighborhood streets and main roads to look for places that are extensively slick. Included in the others are former bus drivers.

Kiser says if they find a slick spot on a bus route, he'll talk with folks from the department of Streets and Roads and ask them to treat it before any buses roll out.

Kiser also says he speaks with experts at the National Weather service, before he meets up with the decision-making team.

Their findings are then presented to the superintendent, who makes the call about whether to go ahead with classes for the day.
