At the request of The Governor, CCPS will operate using Non-Traditional Instruction (NTI) days starting on Monday, March 16th and extending through April 3rd. The following week (April 6-10) will be spring break. NTI days will provide learning opportunities created by teachers. These will be available by either paper copy or quality online learning activities. Our teachers will remain available during set school hours (primarily between 8:00-3:30) to support student learning through their normal means of communication such as Google Classroom, email, Remind, etc.
This is a very fluid and rapidly changing situation. Please check the district website and social media outlets daily for updates.
Support staff is available in the front office of each building during limited operating hours. School buildings are closed to all parents and students. If you need to contact someone from your child’s school, please do so by phone or email. All staff in CCPS are available through district email.

Information for COLLEGE BASED LEARNERS, THE ACT, and AP
College Based Learning
College Based Learners…
For students enrolled with HCC, please communicate with your professor for changes specific to that course.
Hopkinsville Community College has communicated the following:
Consistent with other institutions of higher education across the country, the college is moving to an all-online mode of delivery as mitigation for the COVID-19 pandemic. The start date for this is Monday, March 16, 2020 with a plan to return to normal operations (including on-ground) classes on Monday, April 13, 2020.
All other college operations will continue as normal with the exception that everyone should begin to practice social distancing to minimize exposure to others as much as possible. Open labs on campus are being planned so that students who need assistance or who have limited internet access can come to campus for help. Social distancing protocols will be in place in these computer labs.
The ACT is communicating their updates at the following site about closings to testing sites for the ACT:https://www.act.org/content/act/en/covid-19.html.
Currently, the college boards are treating this pandemic as they would a natural disaster; they have not made any decisions about changes to AP exam test dates for spring 2020. Updates can be found here: https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/coronavirus-update At this time, we do not know if a later testing window is an option for CCPS. The AP Coordinator for each high school will communicate information to students as it becomes available.
Beginning Monday, March 16th CCPS buildings and grounds are NOT available for public use until at least April 10th. Please feel free to contact Brad Hawkins, Chief Operations Officer 270-887-7000 with any questions you may have.
