  • The Value of Community Collaboration

    The longer I am in education, the more importance I place on the value of collaboration. The school cannot solve today’s problems alone and relies on community partnerships to fill gaps. West Fargo Public Schools (WFPS) has had the privilege of working with many outside entities to solve problems like poverty, childhood hunger, closing the achievement gap, mental health, and preparing today’s learners for tomorrow's world.

  • Native Americans, Indigenous People, American Indian, or... ?

    A frequent wondering is the respectful terminology to use for the original people of America. This question and its associated conversations point to the glorious fact that we can all benefit from more cultural competency and a deeper understanding of the diverse nations that account for 3% of our amazing school district.
