FHS Debate
FHS Debate Coach, Rachel Baumann, submits finalist debate topic for 22-23
08/20/2021
Across the country high school students compete in formal debate every year. The topics they debate are carefully chosen. First a coach must research, write, and present a paper on the topic to a panel of judges. From there the top five topic areas are discussed by students and coaches and a final topic is chosen by popular vote. This year forty-seven delegates from nineteen states attended the NFHS Policy Debate Topic Selection Meeting from August 6-8, 2021 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Ten topic reports were presented, one of which was written by Farmington High School’s Debate Coach Rachel Baumann, along with the Rosemount Debate Coach, Nathan Wodarz.

Fall 2021 iPad Information
08/10/2021
We are looking forward to the start of the 2021-22 school year! Time has gone by quickly as we are entering our tenth year of utilizing iPads in a 1:1 ratio to better personalize learning opportunities for students. Better than 75% of our learners opted to check out their iPads for the summer! Students that participated in this summer’s optional iPad checkout have already completed and agreed to the terms of the district 2021-22 iPad Loan Agreement using our RevTrak system. These students are set for the 2021-22 school year and may simply bring their issued iPad with them for the first day of school. The following is general iPad information for families with learners in grades K-12 new to taking an iPad home and/or parents of students checking out their same iPads again this fall. In the next few weeks additional school-specific information will come from building principals regarding iPad deployments for their learners. For most schools this will be after the official start of the new academic year.
