Jefferson County Public Schools asking for feedback on district's first Non-Traditional Instruction program

JCPS is asking parents, students and teachers to weigh in on how the district’s first NTI program went for them.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — No one saw it coming when the clock struck midnight to ring in the new year. 

Yet, here we are in our new normal--working from home, schooling at home, wearing face masks, staying 6 feet away or further from family, friends and strangers.

Home schooling was first for millions, including parents, students and teachers in the Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) district and they made it happen. The school system is now asking for feedback on how the district's first Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) program worked for them. 

The survey opens Friday May 15 and is available until Friday, June 12.

“Non-Traditional Instruction has been a completely new way of learning for our entire JCPS family, and I’m proud of the incredible efforts of everyone involved, from students to parents to teachers, to make it work,” JCPS Superintendent Dr. Marty Pollio said. “We are looking to gain valuable feedback from families about their NTI experience. In a short period of time, JCPS created a platform with innovative instructional practices and provided resources to our community to ensure learning could continue even when we couldn’t be together. As a district, we always want to listen to our employees, parents and students about any new measures or initiatives and see how JCPS might improve, especially if we are forced into a similar, unfortunate school-at-home situation in the future.”
