NTI Weather Days
During the 2021-22 school year, Fayette County Public Schools may use NTI (non-traditional instruction) in place of traditional closings or delays because of severe weather. We hope this allows students to continue learning online when weather makes it unsafe to attend school in person. This option also lets us avoid extending the school year to make up for weather-related cancellations.
During the winter months, teachers will send home Chromebooks with students daily at all grade levels. This will mean logging into Google Classroom or Canvas, the online platforms where teachers post assignments. Classes do not participate in live instruction via Zoom, but teachers set up office hours when they are available to meet virtually with students or parents/caregivers.
District staffers can also help:
Help Desk: (858) 381-4410
Students who cannot complete work on an NTI weather day because of power outages or other issues will have up to three school days after returning to campus to submit missed assignments. Families who need help with internet access can reach out to their school's Family Resource Center or Youth Services Center.
Note: Each school will share its details about student logins, NTI resources, class schedules, teacher office hours, etc. Please contact your child's teacher with any questions.
NTI weather day vs. snow day:
On an NTI weather day, school buildings are closed and afternoon activities are canceled, but students participate in learning at home so it counts as a school day and does not need to be made up.
A regular school closing means the buildings are closed, students have the day off, afternoon activities are canceled, and the class time might be made up or added to the academic calendar.
