What is an NTI Day? A Non-Traditional Instruction, or NTI, day will be announced when the weather does not permit students to come to school. Instead, students will complete assignments at home and turn them in electronically or when school is back in session.  An NTI day counts as an instructional day and does not have to be made up at the end of the year. For more information, see this letter from Woodford County Superintendent Scott Hawkins. Espanol: Que es la instruccion no tradicional?
