FHS Farmington Academy

Welcome

The Farmington Academy  has been created with our students and families in mind.  We recognize the decision to remain in a distance learning model is very personal to families and we commit to provide a rich learning experience for our students whether they attend ISD 192 in person or from a distance.

There is tremendous flexibility with this model and we know that families' personal schedules may have various needs that dictate times a learner may be available.  We will work to design learning that students can access independently or with their teachers at other times as well.  

Relationships are critical to the social and emotional well-being of all students.  Our academy will rely heavily on deep, personal relationships between our Farmington Academy students/families and our ISD 192 staff.  

Our mission, "to ensure each student continuously achieves one's highest aspirations" does not change if a student is choosing to learn in person or at a distance.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we develop the Farmington Academy!




GUIDING PRINCIPLES

All students in ISD 192, regardless if they choose an in person learning experience or they choose the Farmington Academy, we will use the following guiding principles:

  • Connections over Content
  • Less is more with depth, richness, and high cognitive demand
  • Designed flexibility
  • Monitor, evaluate, and respond

Design of Learning 

Learners will engage in their regularly scheduled classes at FHS, but from a distance.  At the High School this experience will look very similar to those doing hybrid learning but just won't be physically coming into the school building.  They will follow a similar daily schedule and will still be enrolled in all of the same classes they would be if they were here full time.   Learners will be assigned to a two day rotation and connect with their classes periods 1, 3, 5 on one day and then 0, 2, 4 on the other day. Learners will also participate in Tiger Connections (academic support) everyday and CCR (College Career Readiness) once a week. Teachers will provide learners with a wide range of opportunities to participate and demonstrate their learning.

Learners will engage through Schoology, email, and Google Meets to connect with peers and staff to continue developing evidence of their learning. Learners will have opportunities to engage with staff on a daily basis to support learning.
