COVID-19 Distance Learning
Fargo Public Schools (FPS) is offering a COVID-19 related distance learning option for students and families for the 2021-22 school year. FPS is utilizing the North Dakota Center for Distance Education (NDCDE) to provide instruction to students who request a COVID-19 related distance learning option K-12. This is a different model for distance learning for elementary and middle school students than what was utilized during the 2020-21 school year and is similar to the model utilized during 2020-21 for high school students. The lessons are asynchronous lessons, meaning that students can access them at any time on their device.
- Elementary students will be enrolled in Math, Science, Social Studies, English, Art, Technology and Physical Education/Health.
- Middle School students will be enrolled in Math, Science, Social Studies, English and one elective course.
- Once the student successfully completes the elective course, they will be enrolled in a new NDCDE elective course.
- High School students will be enrolled in up to four classes at one time.
- Once a student successfully completes a course, they will be enrolled in a new NDCDE course.
