  • CTE Makes Education Relevant, but Why?

    CTE of today has morphed into a vision of cutting-edge, rigorous, and relevant career and technical education programs that provide opportunities for students to explore and prepare for careers after high school.

  • The Value of Community Collaboration

    The longer I am in education, the more importance I place on the value of collaboration. The school cannot solve today’s problems alone and relies on community partnerships to fill gaps. West Fargo Public Schools (WFPS) has had the privilege of working with many outside entities to solve problems like poverty, childhood hunger, closing the achievement gap, mental health, and preparing today’s learners for tomorrow's world.

  • Return of Grade 6 - 12 Students for On-Site Instruction

    West Fargo Public Schools recently adjusted the instructional model to provide four days of on-site instruction for all students in grades 6-12. Provided that our district and community continue to see a decline in COVID-19 cases, quarantines, and the positivity rate, the district will continue planning for full reentry (five days of on-site instruction for all secondary students) starting the week of February 15.

  • Native Americans, Indigenous People, American Indian, or... ?

    A frequent wondering is the respectful terminology to use for the original people of America. This question and its associated conversations point to the glorious fact that we can all benefit from more cultural competency and a deeper understanding of the diverse nations that account for 3% of our amazing school district.
