The Baltimore County School Board voted Tuesday to eliminate a heat closure policy that closes school without air conditioning on extremely hot days. 

The policy was passed in August of 2016. It required schools without air conditioning to close if the index is forecast to reach 90 degrees by 11 a.m.
