During the 2023-24 school year, Fayette County Public Schools may use Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) in place of school closings or delays for severe winter weather. NTI will allow students to continue learning when weather conditions make it unsafe to attend school and to potentially avoid extending the school year to make up for cancellations. 

A closure (snow day) means school is closed, and there are no school activities. Snow days will be made up or added to the school year’s calendar. An NTI weather day, however, counts as a school day since students will participate in learning at home. With NTI, there is no need to make up or add a day to the academic calendar.

How will it work?

FCPS will make a final decision by 5 a.m. to determine if we will use an NTI weather day, closing, or delay. You will receive an email, phone call, and text message notifying you of the district’s decision.

Student Chromebooks will be sent home beginning January 4th through the end of February. All students should have access to their specific teacher's Google Classrooms and work will be posted on this website as well. All directions and links for assignments will be posted on an NTI day by 7:45 a.m. 

On NTI days, all teachers have office hours from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. You may email teachers with any specific questions or concerns. Teachers will be conducting check-ins with students during these times as well. 

Students who are unable to complete their work on an NTI weather day because of power outages or other issues will have three school days after returning to school to complete and submit missed assignments. 

Where can I find more information? Is there anything I need to do to prepare?

If you have questions about Google Classroom, student email accounts, Chromebooks, or other tools students will use to access and submit assignments on NTI weather days, resources are available from Tech Support.

You can also call the Tech Help Desk on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at (859) 381-HELP (4357) for assistance with Chromebooks and student email accounts.
