eLearning in the 2021-2022 School Year
Based upon survey data and feedback from families, FNSBSD is excited to offer full time eLearning for students in kindergarten through grade 12 for the 2021-2022 school year. With the eLearning program, your student will stay enrolled in their home school and receive remote instruction from a district 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 2021-2022 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. If internet access presents a barrier to your child enrolling in eLearning, please contact us, as assistance may be available.

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 (7-12) eLearning
At the secondary level, eLearning is teacher-led instruction mixed with family-supported and independent at-home application and learning. Students are provided the opportunity to attend synchronous "real-time" sessions while having 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. The curriculum is a blend of teacher-created curriculum using adopted District materials, and vendor-provided curriculum from Apex Learning.
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. Limited middle school electives may be available in the fall. Students may take up to two classes at their home school with permission from the principal as space is available.

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 2021-2022 school year, all high school eLearning students will test at their attendance school with the eLearning lab facilitator. If you have any questions about this program guideline, please contact Marie Laukhuf, eLearning Coordinator at 907-452-2000 x11236.
