Severe weather or poor road conditions can result in an NTI weather day, a one- or two-hour delay to the start of school, an early dismissal, or cancellation of school.
During the 2023-24 school year, Fayette County Public Schools will use Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) instead of school closings whenever feasible. NTI will allow students to continue learning when weather conditions make it unsafe to attend school in person. An NTI weather day counts as a school day since students participate in learning at home. With NTI, there is no need to make up or add a day to the academic calendar.
In the event of a sustained weather event or state of emergency, detailed information will be communicated in response to specific conditions at the time.
NTI Weather Day
Students will use their district-issued devices or other materials to complete activities outlined by their teacher(s) in Canvas. Synchronous learning will not take place; however, NTI contingency plans on IEPs must be implemented. Teachers are expected to offer virtual office hours at predetermined times.
Afternoon and evening activities:
A decision about afternoon and evening activities will be made as soon as possible. Decisions will be communicated to principals, who will distribute the information to coaches and sponsors. Adult activities (like SBDM meetings and PTA meetings) may continue at the principal’s discretion.
Please take a moment to review our NTI district policy as we enter the winter season:
o Asynchronous Instruction
o Students have three days to turn in assignments once they return to school.
o Students receive participation through completing the assignment for the NTI day.
o No new material presented (*New material allowable for Dual Credit, AP, IB)
o Zoom links are on canvas, and easy to find, so students can ask questions during teacher office hours.
o Office hours 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.
