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.
You will know in advance if NTI days will be used. On NTI days, your child will bring home their school computer and will do work that is assigned to them on Google Classroom. We have been working hard to teach our younger students how to use this platform and, for our older students, it will be a breeze. Your child will have 3 days to turn in any work that is assigned on NTI days. Teachers will have office hours from 8-10 (through a ZOOM link) for any questions. They will share the ZOOM link where you can log on and communicate with your teacher for help on DOJO. If the weather is unpredictable and we are not able to prepare for a NTI day, the district will call for a traditional "snow day". As always, let us know if you have any questions or need help to connect if an NTI day is used.
For more information, please check with your student's HOMEROOM teacher through our Dojo Platform to see what the expectations for your individual child are today!
