What is a Non-Traditional (NTI) School Day?
In response to the significant number of instructional days missed due to safety/weather and health-related issues, Washington County School District has been granted a Non-Traditional School Days waiver which has been designated for Commander Days. This detailed plan outlines how instruction will be delivered for ALL students during a day when school is not open due to unforeseen circumstances. The plan gives teachers the opportunity to refine their online presence for content delivery and provides hard copy content for those students that may not have access to technology or network resources. The planned result is less loss of instructional time and increased ability to learn new content when school is back in session.
Lessons: Classroom teachers will develop the NTI lessons and will assign them through online programs and paper packets when necessary.
Delivery: Classroom teachers will provide access to digital lessons through their teacher web pages and google classrooms. Print packets may be available upon request for students who do not have digital access at home.
Accountability: Students will be required to complete the tasks assigned during the Commander (NTI) Day within two days of returning to school. Students will submit their work directly to their classroom teacher unless directed otherwise by the school.
Support: Work assigned for Commander Days should be completed independently by students. Faculty members will be accessible on these days in order to assist with any questions.
Time: The superintendent may designate NTI/Commander Days due to health or safety reasons. At the time an NTI day is determined, the superintendent will notify the community through a one-call, website posting, social media, and tv/radio notices.
Content: Commander Day work will give students the opportunity to review and apply content from their classes in order to ensure their understanding of essential concepts and skills.
Communications: At the time an NTI day is determined, the superintendent will notify the community through a one-call, website posting, social media, and tv/radio notices.
Staff will be available at the schools from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. on all Commander (NTI) Days.
