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.



The plan will not necessarily be enacted on the first emergency day. After Dec. 5th, 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.


Instructions for accessing digital content will be provided throughout the school year and displayed below. Hard-copy packets will be sent home periodically throughout the year (beginning in December).


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:

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. For all high school students and possibly elementary students who have an instructor that has developed a Coursesites/Blackboard account, you will be able to communicate directly with them from within Coursesites. Please note high school students should have already created a Coursesites account and been enrolled into each of your courses.

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. These sites combined with their utilization of Blackboard/CourseSites to provide for online course creation add a web-based component to their classrooms and dramatically increases parent-teacher communication opportunities.

Blackboard is an e-learning platform that allows the instructors to post and update course material, interact with students and parents, promote collaboration and will be utilized for NTI (Non-Traditional Instruction) days for High School instructors. An additional benefit to using Blackboard is that many colleges and universities have adopted it as a course management system and require that students use it for their classes. Allowing our students to use and become comfortable with the program now helps make their transition to post-secondary education an easier one. To enroll into a course, each student will be required to first create a student account.

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. Please contact the instructor if you have questions.
