*Important Info* Snow Days vs. NTI Days

NTI vs. Snow Days

 

Good afternoon, BCPS Families!

 

As we enter the winter-weather season, we wanted to be sure to communicate our plans for inclement weather days.

 

General Information

  • ‚ÄčEnsure your communication preferences are up to date so that you receive notifications according to your preferences (see the graphic at the bottom of this post).

  • Should we need to be out a full day or operate on a delay, that call will be made by 5 AM, with mass communications to follow as soon as possible.

  • Should we need to release early, that call will be made by 11 AM so that families can make arrangements for childcare as needed, with mass communications to follow as soon as possible.

 

There are two types of full-day weather “days” that we could call: 

 

“Snow Day”

  • This is what people generally think of when they hear "snow day". 

  • There will be no school work or assignments required.

  • The day WILL be made up later in the year.

 

“NTI Day”

  • NTI stands for "Non-Traditional Instruction".

  • Student participation on an NTI Day is critical!

    • Without enough student participation, NTI days will not count and will have to be made up at the end of the year. If student participation is high enough, per state regulations, the day WILL NOT have to be made up later in the year. 

    • Student participation for an NTI Day is defined as one or more of the following:

      • Email from the student

      • Parent or student phone call

      • Logging onto an online course, program, platform, etc. (Edgenuity, etc.)

      • Turning in an assignment on Google Classroom, Seesaw, and/or other digital platform/tool used by teacher

      • Video conference with a student (Zoom or Google Meet)

      • Virtual class meet with camera on or off

  • Unlike during periods of remote learning at the start of the pandemic, student participation must be taken on the actual NTI day itself and cannot be changed later.

Stay safe, healthy, and warm!
