Bennett Peek of the Week

FEBRUARY 15th - FEBRUARY 26th

The mission of Bennett Elementary School

Achieving excellence by educating and empowering all students to succeed.

Dear Parents,


In the 2020-2021 school year, Fargo Public Schools was able to provide the Virtual Academy for students and families because of an executive order by Governor Burgum. Currently, that order is slated to expire at the end of the school year; legislative action would be needed to continue offering this type of setting. As a result, all students enrolled in the Virtual Academy in the 2020-2021 school year will be enrolled back at their neighborhood school for the 2021-2022 school year. This helps assure that we have your student assigned a teacher for the 2021-2022 school year.


If future legislative action allows for North Dakota schools to offer virtual programming for students, Fargo Public Schools would complete a process to review the viability of implementing a sustainable virtual academy. FPS has experienced successes and also learned many lessons over the course of this school year that would be considered if a virtual school was allowed to continue.


Hope this finds you all doing well!
