Register early. Classes will be cancelled if they do not meet the minimum enrollment three (3) business days prior to the start of a new session. CAC reserves the right to cancel, combine or reschedule any class. Instructors may alter the class schedule during a session to accommodate holidays. They will discuss any changes with each class.

In case of inclement weather, CAC closes when DISD closes in most cases. We also report such information to local TV stations. For classes held outdoors – welding and stone carving – we usually reschedule classes if the temperature is below 40 degrees. You will be notified by your instructor or staff if your class must be rescheduled.
