NTI Days

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 Protocols

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.

  • Asynchronous Instruction

  • Assignments posted in Canvas 

  • Zoom Links for office hours in Canvas

  • SCAPA Teacher Office Hours ***

    • Elementary - 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.

    • Middle - 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

    • High - 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

*** Teachers who teach multiple levels will post their specific office hours timeslot on the Canvas home pages of each of their classes.  Please refer to those Canvas home pages for accurate office hours. 

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.
