Zoo Trip

Virtual Academy students came together for their fourth-quarter connection day for a trip to Chahinkapa Zoo in Wahpeton, N.D. Students saw a wide variety of animals and rode on the carousel. They practiced social studies skills with a geography scavenger hunt, locating where animals come from, and science skills, measuring their heights and weights against other animals.

Summer Library Resources & Options

Fargo Public Schools (FPS) offers virtual learning for students living within the FPS District boundaries. FPS utilizes Imagine Edgenuity and the North Dakota Center for Distance Education (NDCDE) to provide curriculum to students who request a virtual learning option. Lessons are asynchronous, meaning students may access them at any time on their device. Scheduled support is also available via video conferencing.

  • Elementary students (k-5) are enrolled in Math, Science, Social Studies, English, Art, Technology, and Physical Education/Health.
  • Middle School students (6-8) are enrolled in Math, Science, Social Studies, English and elective courses.
  • High School students (9-12) are enrolled in three courses at one time and have nine weeks to complete them. Successfully completing six courses per semester keeps students on track for graduation.

Virtual Academy requires a full-semester commitment, a designated at-home learning coach, and careful planning and discussion for the family prior to enrolling. It is not a short-term absence solution, a vacation learning option, the sole responsibility of the student, or a learning option for families who do not have at-home supports in place to ensure the success of their student(s). Enrollment is based on deadlines, availability, and prior success in virtual learning. 



Registration for the Virtual Academy is closed for the 2023-24 school year. If you are interested in putting your student on the list to register for the 2024-25 school year, please complete this Google form. Thank you!

Policy Review

Each year, FPS administration conducts an Administrative Policy review. Administrative Policies are reviewed on a set rotation, ensuring all policies are reviewed once in a four-year cycle. Through this review process, some policies do not require any changes while other policies receive minor updates or more substantial updates. For the 2024 review cycle, administration has been reviewing this year’s set of policies during the school year.
