Non-Traditional Instruction Days (NTI)
An NTI day, known as a Tiger Day, allows Barbourville Independent to provide non-traditional instruction on days when students are not able to attend school due to inclement weather. On the designated NTI days, students will have assignments (either online or paper packets) that provide enhancement, remediation, and enrichment opportunities. Depending on the student’s grade level, the assignments may contain lessons from reading/language arts, mathematics, and writing. Lessons are supported with online resources but can be completed without access to the internet.
Teachers will be available from 8-12 and 1-3 on Tiger Days via school email. Students are encouraged to email the teachers for assistance with assignments.
Tiger Days will be announced through the television, the school webpage, and the school Facebook page.
If a student is unable to complete the lesson prior to returning to school, he/she will have three days to make up the missing work. If a student fails to submit the NTI day work on the final make-up day, the student will receive a zero for that assignment.
