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.
- High School students will be enrolled in five classes at one time and should aim to complete six courses per semester to stay on track for graduation.
Virtual Academy registration begins at the student’s home school building. Families must complete one registration form per student. Enrollment is based on deadlines and availability.
