Summer learning opportunities for FWPS students

Starting July 6, recorded video lessons for grades K-3 will be available online and broadcast on local TV Channel 21.

With plans for the upcoming school year still in the works, Federal Way students are encouraged to continue learning at home to help prevent significant learning loss over the summer months.

Federal Way Public Schools is providing ample opportunities for student learning by offering a daily schedule, learning packets arriving at students’ homes, and an array of online activities.

Because access is important for all, students who checked out loaner laptops and Wi-Fi hot spots are allowed to keep the items over the course of the summer, FWPS announced in a recent news release.

Starting July 6, recorded video lessons for grades K-3 in English Language Arts and math will be available online and broadcast on local TV Channel 21.

FWPS is asking parents and guardians to dedicate time for learning in their child(ren)’s daily schedule this summer by:

  • Setting aside 90 minutes a day for students in grades K-5 and 110 minutes a day for students in grades 6-12.
  • Having a designated space for their child to learn.
  • Making time for students in grades K-3 to watch recorded video lessons available in multiple ways via Channel 21, the FWPS website, and the FWPS YouTube channel.

More information about summer learning for all FWPS students can be found on the district’s website at
