FERGUS FALLS, Minn., Nov. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- iQ Academy Minnesota, an online public school program, is adding grades K-5 to its offerings and is accepting applications for new students for a second semester start.

iQ Academy Minnesota is an accredited online public school of Independent School District 544 that offers Minnesota students statewide a high-quality alternative to the traditional learning experience.

"iQ Academy Minnesota and Fergus Falls Public Schools are very excited to have received approval from the Minnesota Department of Education to expand our online option for students to grades K-5," said  Jerry Ness, Fergus Falls Public Schools Superintendent. "Innovation is one of our District's core values – we believe that offering a variety of quality education opportunities will benefit today's learner."

Parents of iQ Academy Minnesota students praise the program's quality instruction, engaged teachers and flexible scheduling.

"My kids are responsible to their teacher and are becoming independent learners," said Tracie Christopherson, who has a 6 th grader and 9 th grader at iQ Academy Minnesota. "It is just so great that I don't have to be the only cheerleader because my kids know they need to get the work done."
