    1Fort Approach to Learning

    The School District of Fort Atkinson is committed to providing equitable and aligned services to all students for the 2020-21 school year.  Through maintaining students in their home schools and following through on our commitment to comprehensive programming by honoring student course selections, families can choose a learning format - in-person or remote / “virtual” - with confidence that all students will continue as valued members of our learning community and learn from highly qualified SDFA teachers.


    Learning Preference Changes

    The district is encouraging families to commit to a learning format selection for one quarter (9 weeks).   If a family feels a change in learning format needs to occur within the quarter due to an unexpected circumstance or academic need, requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Please contact your school main office to request a change.

    If a student falls ill they will be transitioned to the virtual format during their time away and may return once the quarantine time period has been completed.
