DMS Farmington Academy


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!


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 

Farmington Academy will include 6-8 teachers from both Boeckman Middle School and Dodge Middle School. Learners will engage in designed experiences in math, science, language arts, and social studies from Farmington staff. Staff will work hard to personalize the learning experience to best meet the needs of all students. There will be opportunities for intervention, enrichment, and extension through learning experiences in the Farmington Academy. Students in the Farmington Academy will be assigned a Tiger Connections teacher to provide both social, emotional and academic support throughout the year.

Learners will engage through Schoology, email, and Google Meets to connect with peers and staff to continue developing strong relationships and evidence of their learning.
