February 28, 2019

FERGUS FALLS, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 28, 2019--iQ Academy Minnesota (iQMN), an accredited, full- and part-time online public school program of Fergus Falls Public Schools, is now accepting enrollment applications for the 2019-2020 school year. Available to students statewide in kindergarten through 12th grade, iQMN offers Minnesota families an education option that meets them at their point of need.

iQMN combines online instruction, a rigorous curriculum, and the support of state-licensed teachers to offer students an alternative to the traditional brick-and-mortar education.

“We look forward to welcoming new families for the upcoming school year,” said Theresa Gallagher, iQMN’s Operations Manager. “Whatever a student’s academic experience was before enrolling with iQMN, our priority is to provide a learning environment where each student can succeed.”

Students at iQMN are offered a full course load in the core subjects of English/language arts, math, science and history across all grade levels. A host of electives are available for middle and high school students. iQMN’s teachers facilitate live, interactive online classes, allowing students to enjoy a safe learning environment anywhere with an internet connection.

iQMN offers an online learning community for students and parents alike. In addition to scheduled classes, teachers communicate regularly with students and families via phone and email in order to ensure they are supported and students are appropriately challenged. Parents can also access their middle school and high school students’ grades, homework, and class assignments using the K12 mobile app. The app serves as a connection point for families and school staff, as parents are able to contact teachers and school administrators with just the touch of a button on their mobile devices.

Students choose online school for a variety of reasons, including advanced learning, a bullying-free environment, and the ability to support extracurricular pursuits or medical needs. iQMN’s online platform gives students the opportunity to pursue academic goals in a supportive online environment, with resources that support their individual learning styles.

Enrollment is now open for the 2019-2020 school year.
