Credit Recovery Exit Details

Montana Digital Academy’s Spring 2015 credit recovery semester will end on Friday, June 5, 2015. Here are some specific details about how we will proceed at the end of the semester.

  • As has been the case since Fall 2013, we will not transfer progress from semester to semester and students were expected to complete the class within the semester parameters. Students who do not complete a Spring 2015 class will need to restart the semester curriculum if they reenroll in the Summer 2015 or Fall 2015 program.
  • Friday June 5, 2015 is the final day of the semester program. Extensions are only available if the student has an individual situation justifying an extension (reasons may include a family emergency during the last week, illness impacting the last week or other acute emergency). To discuss the situation, please contact the support desk, support@montanadigitalacademy.org.
  • If a student believes they have completed a class, they can help facilitate their exit by contacting their academic coach via email ASAP.
  • Due to the volume of offline assignments submitted at the end of the term, students and sites should expect a minimum of a one-business-day turnaround in completion of grading of all offline assignments.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of our support staff and we’ll be happy to assist. support@montanadigitalacademy.org

Credit Recovery Experiencing Issues

MTDA has received notification from Edmentum that PLE is experiencing issues this morning. From Edmentum:

“We are currently experiencing issues in PLE such as slowness, server errors logging in, students assignments page stuck loading new assignments, new assignments not displaying in learner view, and blank Edit status page. We are working to resolve them as quickly as possible. We will let you know as soon as we have an update.”

We will keep you up to date in this location when we hear updates. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Update @ 9:04am: Edmentum has reported to MTDA that they expect to fix the problem “within the hour.”

Update @ 11:38am: From Edmentum: “This morning we experienced an issue with the PLE application causing some users to be unable to login, slowness while logging in, and newly assigned students unable to access assignments. Our Development team has since resolved this issue.”

Attention AP Students and Site Facilitators: AP Bulletin Released

Attention all Advanced Placement students:

Please see this link for the 2015 Advanced Placement bulletin for students and parents from the College Board.

As a reminder, MTDA has no means to administer AP exams, so, if you intend to sit for the exam in May, you MUST contact your local school to facilitate organizing a means of doing so.

Attention all schools, students and parents:

Like most schools and government offices across the state, MTDA offices in Missoula will be closed on Monday, February 16, 2015 for President’s Day.

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.

High School Original Credit Drop Deadline

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:
