Non-Traditional Instruction, Staff Websites & Course Management

What is Non-Traditional Instruction?

In response to the large number of snow and emergency days in recent years, Harlan County was granted a Non-Traditional Day waiver. This very 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 in instruction time and increased ability to learn new content when school is back in session.  


- NTI Letter to Families/Information Sheet
- NTI Frequently Asked Questions


Both digital and hard-copy content will be available for students on Non-Traditional School Days.



Teachers are providing opportunities for students to access content digitally and via hard-copy lessons.



Harlan County will utilize days that are not deemed to be extremely hazardous giving staff the option to come into work if they have the need or desire. NTI days will be called at the discretion of the Superintendent and keep in mind that not every day school is cancelled will be declared an NTI day.    


Instructions for accessing digital content will be provided throughout the school year and displayed below. Hard-copy packets will be sent home before the first NTI day is called.


A One-Call will be made to all students and staff announcing Non-Traditional School Days.



Teachers are required to maintain a minimum of an online presence from the hours of 8:00 AM - 11:30 AM and 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM. Parents or students can also call the school and leave a message with the principal.



Students will be required to complete all tasks assigned during a non-instructional day. Extended time will be available for those circumstances whereby the work could not be completed due to extenuating circumstances (i.e., loss of power, lost packet).



Contact your child’s teacher or school principal. You can also contact:

Brett Johnson, Director of Pupil Personnel

District Office: 606.573.4330

Non-Traditional Instruction Packets

The documents below will open using Adobe Acrobat Reader which is a free download if it is not already loaded onto your pc. Please complete all work and have it ready to turn in when school is back in session. If you have questions or need assistance, please e-mail your instructor (below) who will be available from the hours of 8:00 AM - 11:30 AM and 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM. Parents or students can also call the school and leave a message with the principal if needed.

Staff Websites & Course Management

Many of the staff within the Harlan County Public School District have chosen to go beyond the basic requirements of Blended Learning/Non-Traditional Instruction and develop their own classroom websites and/or use another platform like Coursesites or Google Classroom to increase communication opportunities with parents and streamline the process of sharing files between teachers and students.   Coursesites:
- Quick Start Guide - Instructors
- Export & Import a Course

We want to make you aware that CourseSites has developed a new platform and to continue to use Coursesites, our staff and students were required to develop new accounts prior to December 31, 2018. With that being said, we want to provide you with the option to use the Coursesites platform or not. If you would like to continue using it, the links above and to the right will help you quickly setup your new account and also provide instructions for exporting and importing your existing courses. A Student Enrollment guide will be added soon.

If you need to change, add or remove a link beside of your name please e-mail Mr. Scott Pace ( For the staff at HC that will not be using Coursesites, please provide a .pdf document containing your NTI assignments for students to access.

The following links are provided as a resource for staff, students and parents alike. Every attempt is made to ensure that all content is accurate and kept up-to-date, but is subject to change without notice.
