Farmington High School Learning Labe
FHS learners create preschool learning lab
Farmington High School offers learners many practical and hands-on learning experiences, especially in the Family and Consumer Sciences department. A state approved program of study in human services is among the variety of classes offered at Farmington High School to nourish learners’ sparks and prepare them for future careers. The program of study includes a series of three child development classes which culminates in a practicum, called the Learning Lab, where high school students design and teach preschool lessons to actual preschoolers. To participate in the Learning Lab, students must first take the Developing Babies and Toddlers to Teens classes. Each class is a trimester long, so this program can be completed in one school year.

Legislative Update
End of legislative session brings careful review by district to assess impact of approved bills
With the Minnesota Legislature scheduled to finish its work and adjourn on Monday, May 22, school districts around the state are awaiting the final approval of the Omnibus Education Bill. The provisions included in this bill will outline the funding districts will receive for the next two years and also likely include other provisions that will impact how districts operate. “While we are hopeful that the final bill will provide additional funding for our district, the final impact will not be known until the bill is approved by the House and Senate, and signed by Governor Walz,” said Farmington Area Public Schools Superintendent Jason Berg. The details of the final bill are important because more than 70% of the district’s funding comes from the state. Legislative action can have an impact on both the district’s revenue and expenditures, as well as the financial planning for future years.
