High School Original Credit Drop Deadline

Attention Spring 2015 high school original credit students:

We are now in beginning of our fourth week of the Spring 2015 semester and I have a quick note for you.
Tuesday, February 10, 2015 is the is the drop deadline for the Spring 2015 program.  We are three weeks into the semester and if you decide the environment is not for you or if your plans or circumstances have changed, we need you to be sure to get your drop request into your school counselor right way.  After the drop deadline,  we will report a WF/F back to your local school for reporting on your report card if you stop completing assignments or request a drop.  To drop a class, talk to your school counselor or site facilitator.  If you don’t know who to talk to, please contact our support desk and we’ll give you a hand: support@montanadigitalacademy.org.
If you are having problems with anything, please, let us help you!  We are more than happy to work with you to clear up and confusion and help you be an AWESOME online learner.

As previously announced, the high school original credit drop deadline for Spring 2015 is Tuesday, February 10, 2015.

After Tuesday, drop requests will result in a W/WF being reported back to the school for reporting on student transcripts.  Schools may, at their option, also use a local, board adopted drop policy.

Drops are made by a site facilitator only.  For directions on requesting a drop, see:
