Welcome to Virtual Academy!
Fargo Public Schools (FPS) is 100% committed to our mission to educate and empower all students to succeed. We are committed to providing the safest education environment possible for our students and staff. To that end, Fargo Public Schools administration developed the FPS Smart Restart Plan for students and staff for the 2020-2021 school year, working with local, city, and state health officials, and utilizing recommendations from the North Dakota Department of Public Instruction and guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to create the structure for the plan. One portion of the plan is a Virtual Academy option. The FPS Virtual Academy is provided as an alternative education option to families with students in K-12 during the 2020-21 school year, as detailed in the FPS Smart Restart Plan. Please see click here for more information about FPS Virtual Academy.
Moving Forward and Second Semester
The Fargo Public Schools Virtual Academy continues to be an option for families with students in K-12. For more information about the FPS Virtual Academy, please contact the building principal at your student’s school. Families who are currently part of the Elementary and Middle School Virtual Academies received an email asking about their families’ wishes for second semester (remain in the virtual academy or return to face to face instruction). Families who are currently part of the High School Virtual Academy should contact their school counselor if they wish to continue in the virtual academy for second semester and enroll in new NDCDE course. New families wishing to begin in the FPS Virtual Academy at the beginning of second semester (January 19th) should contact their building principal by December 21.
