Fargo middle and high schools to transition to distance learning in October

The FPS Instructional Plan Committee will meet again on October 5.

FARGO, N.D. — Middle and high school students at Fargo Public Schools will be switching to distance learning.

The move will happen on October 5th and go through October 19th.

Elementary schools will continue with hybrid learning.

The district’s COVID-19 Instructional Plan Committee meets every two weeks and will meet again on October 5th.

That’s when they will decide how to go forward after the two-week period of distance learning.

Superintendent Dr. Rupak Gandhi says, “I think what the committee voted on was to honor what they have already communicated to parents and committee members which is that two week transition time and try to encourage that two week time whenever we can when making a level change.

Dr. Gandhi says the committee looks at everything from the Cass County transmission rate to the amount of cases at the schools.

They also look at the ability to social distance and how to mitigate close contacts.

A group is planning a peaceful gathering against distance learning next Monday at the public schools office.
