Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools on a 2-hour delay Tuesday due to Irma

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will operate on a two-hour delay Tuesday due to weather conditions caused by Tropical Storm Irma.

The district tweeted about the delay at 9:18 p.m. Monday night, stating they would "err on the side of safety." In an email, officials said the decision was made after an 8 p.m. updated from local emergency management staff.

The decision came after many criticized the district for operating on a normal schedule Monday while surrounding school districts were closed.

The ASEP program will operate on a regular schedule Tuesday and staff will report on time.
