Fargo schools to use county COVID-19 case rate to determine instruction level

FARGO — The district's COVID-19 Instructional plan committee announced they will use COVID-19 case rate in Cass County bi-weekly to determine if the school will continue to hold in-person classes or transfer to distance learning for all grades.

Fargo Public Schools' updates to the Smart Restart Plan includes a new rule: if the case rate is less than 9, in-person classes can be held for all students. The determination will still be up to the school board.

The district said this rule will go into effect Sept, 21.

Any change from it's hybrid start to school would take two weeks to implement.

Moorhead public schools will use a similar model in their plan with Clay County case rates.
