The Department of Education and Children's school closure procedures will be discussed in the House of Keys next week.

Arbory, Castletown and Malew MHK Jason Moorhouse will ask Education Minister Graham Cregeen how his Department decides whether schools should remain open or close during periods of extreme weather.

DEC schools remained open while ex-Hurricane Ophelia hit the Island earlier this week, while the independent Buchan School and King William's College shut early.

The House of Keys sits on Tuesday.
