Non-Traditional Instruction resumes April 13, 2020

By Phyllis Curry

Adair County students will return to non-traditional instruction Monday, April 13 and continue through Friday, May 1, or until Governor Beshear and Commissioner of Education Kevin Brown make a decision on the remainder of the 2019-20 school year.

The first phase of NTI was for 14 days. The district was able to collect 94% of the completed student packets for those 14 days, ensuring those days will count as instructional days and will not have to be made up at the end of the year.

The second phase will look a bit different, but will still require students to complete all assignments in either a digital or paper format. All Adair County Primary Center students will have a paper packet. Those packets may be picked up Monday, April 13, 2020 at the school between 9amCT and 3pmCT.

All students in the district will receive work for core subjects (reading/English, math, science, social studies) on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and all other related subjects on Tuesday and Thursday.

Students at ACES, ACMS and ACHS have the choice of doing online classes or paper packets. All online classes will be available at 9amCT Monday morning. School websites will have instructions on how to access the digital content. Paper packets may be picked up at all schools from 9amCT to 3pmCT on Monday, April 13. Students do not need to complete both. The choice depends on personal preference and available technology.

The biggest difference in the 15 days of NTI from April 13-May 1 is that work must now be documented daily by teachers and weekly reports made that show completion rates.

This reporting is required by the Kentucky Department of Education. Completed work can either be returned to schools at the end of each week, scanned to teachers daily, emailed to teachers, or pictures of completed work can be sent to teachers.
