Middlesboro Independent recognizes the importance of continuous, uninterrupted teaching and learning, therefore, we are implementing a plan for Non-Traditional Instructional Days (NTI) for our students to combat the loss of instruction that occurs during school closings.
Non-Traditional Instruction is a waiver granted by the state whereby students are still learning even though school has been cancelled due to hazardous weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
Parents/students will be notified through the following methods:
- One Call Now Messaging system
- District and school webpages
- School’s Facebook page
- Local TV stations
- Local radio news outlets
Both digital and hard-copy content will be available for students on Non-Traditional School Days. The Middlesboro Public Library provides free internet for students who do not have access to it at home. Students will be given three days to complete and submit assignments after each NTI day. Extended time will be given to those who have IEP modifications/accommodations.
Availability of faculty:
Faculty will maintain an online presence from 9:00 AM- 12:00 and 1:00PM – 4:00 on these days to provide assistance.
Packets will be sent home in January.
Please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or the Principal with any questions or concerns. You can find their emails by viewing our profile using our staff directory.
NTI Day Packets
The documents below will open using Adobe Acrobat Reader which is a free download if it is not already loaded onto your pc or mac. Please complete all work and have it ready to turn in when school is back in session.
SchoolPointe Learning Management System (LMS)
Many of the staff within the Middlesboro Independent School District have selected to use SchoolPointe Learning Management System (LMS). The LMS is an e-learning platform that allows instructors to post and update class material, interact with students, and can be used by middle school and high school instructors. The instructions for using the LMS have been sent home with the NTI packets, however if you need another copy you can find them here.
If you are experiencing any technical difficulties, please contact the school Library Media Specialists.
