Let’s learn on days that school is canceled due to inclement weather and student well-being.

Operation Snow School, known statewide as non-traditional instruction, is Knox County Public Schools’ response to the large number of cancellations that occur annually due to inclement weather.

Non-traditional instruction (NTI) simply allows for the continuation of learning when students miss days of school.   We don’t use NTI every time we cancel school.  When we do declare a NTI day, students will have the opportunity for skill reinforcement, remediation, and enrichment through electronic or conventional paper lessons that extend what they would have been in learning in school that day.

Is today an NTI / Operation Snow School Day?

We have created a chart for the 2019-2020 school year that lets you track which days were NTI days and when the assignment is due for those days:
