eLearning in the 2022-2023 School Year
FNSBSD is excited to offer full time eLearning for students in kindergarten through grade 12 for the 2022-2023 school year. With the eLearning program, your student will stay enrolled in their home school and receive remote instruction from a teacher using district curriculum. The FNSBSD eLearning program will:
- Provide a consistent and reliable plan for students and families
- Offer courses aligned to district curriculum
- Ensure secondary courses meet NCAA and graduation requirements
- Provide resources to support parents as learning coaches for their students
- Ensure virtual teachers have been trained to engage students and support online learners
The eLearning program is still connected to a student’s neighborhood/choice school. Parents and students will continue to:
- Receive school communications
- Have opportunities to participate in activities, clubs, and athletics
- Access academic planning and graduation support
For the 2022-2023 school year, eLearning will provide students an option to learn at the best time for their family. eLearning students may check out district devices, but will need consistent access to the internet.
Elementary (K-5) eLearning
eLearning is teacher-led instruction mixed with family-supported and independent at-home application and learning. Students will be provided weekly assignments with the option for synchronous "real time" instruction and daily check-ins offered by their teacher. They will engage in learning each school day and will work toward mastery of all standards for their grade level. Due dates and deadlines are provided at all grades to help students stay on track.

Secondary (6-12) eLearning
At the secondary level, eLearning is teacher-led instruction mixed with family-supported and independent at-home application and learning. Students will have 24/7 access to asynchronous material. They will engage in learning each school day and will work toward mastery of all standards for their grade level. While students learn at their own pace, due dates and deadlines are provided to help students stay on track. Most of the curriculum is vendor-provided from Apex Learning. High school eLearning students MUST test at their attendance school with the eLearning lab facilitator.
At the middle school level, students will be able to take their core classes: English, math, science, and social studies, as well as PE and health. Students may take up to two classes at their home school with permission from the principal as space is available. Click here for more information and FAQs on middle school eLearning.
At the high school level, students should contact their school counselor for available classes. High school students may take a single course, up to their entire course load on eLearning.
NOTE: Beginning in the 2022-2023 school year, most secondary eLearning classes will be taught by teachers with Edmentum/APEX. These teachers may live in Alaska or possibly another state. eLearning students WILL NOT have regular access to their teachers. Most secondary grades will only be current in PowerSchool at the end of each quarter and semester. Families will be able to view current grades and progress through their APEX account.
