    Online Credit Acceleration - Summer school exists to help students accelerate their learning outside of the traditional school year. This is available to our students through online courses. An FNSBSD teacher will be available to support and assist students who are taking acceleration classes, as well as a district teacher who will be grading and providing feedback. eLearning courses are rigorous online courses that require dedication and determination to be successful.  These semester long (18 week) courses must be completed in the 7 weeks allocated for summer school. Select courses will be offered through APEX, Fuel Ed or Google Classroom and are taught by a certified district teacher.  The list of courses is available here Summer School Course Options.
