Advertising with West Fargo Public Schools
West Fargo Public Schools creates and distributes numerous publications to students, staff, and families on a regular basis.

West Fargo Kid-Ventures is a monthly advertising catalog that is electronically distributed to West Fargo Public School families through the Blackboard Messaging System.
For information geared toward students in 6th-8th grade, noncurricular materials must be distributed through West Fargo Teen-Ventures. West Fargo Teen-Ventures is a monthly advertising catalog that is electronically distributed to West Fargo Public School families through the Blackboard Messaging System.
For information geared toward students in 9th-12th grade, noncurricular materials must be submitted to the Sheyenne High School and West Fargo High School student publications organization via the purchase of ad space in their monthy publications.
For information geared toward staff, materials are reviewed and shared either in the district’s weekly staff newsletter, on the district’s internal staff intranet, or dispersed to the Human Resources Department when appropriate.
