2021-22 Learning Environment Options for Students

Forsyth County Schools will again offer students and their families a choice of learning environments for the 2021-22 school year. We ask that you thoughtfully consider the learning environment in which your child will be most successful. The choice you make will determine staffing for thousands of school employees and 51,400+ student schedules, so it is critical that families are confident and certain in their decision. There will only be one chance, at the semester break in December/January, to make a change in your child’s learning environment for 2021-22.


On Monday, April 12 we will send you a survey to select the learning environment for your child for the next school year. If you have more than one child, you will need to complete a survey for each child. If you do not submit a response to the survey by Friday, April 30, your child’s placement will default to learning in-person at school for 2021-22.


Middle schools will offer 3 choices:

  1. In-person learning at school, or
  2. Virtual learning at home in a live, synchronous environment, or
  3. Virtual learning at home in a self-paced, asynchronous environment


Watch this video to learn more about these options.

At a reduced price of only $2.00, your child can get one now to help them stay organized for the last part of the school year!! Available now on My Payments Plus at https://www.mypaymentsplus.com.

We want your OLD Phones!

The school is in need of old phones that are within 5 years of age. Our Invention, Innovation & Technological Systems classes will benefit greatly from these devices and help recycle the materials. A drop box is located in the counseling office or may be left at the front office. Thank you in advance for your help.
