High School Original Credit: Open Enrollment Closed; Late Enrollment Available for Most Classes

Hello from the Montana Digital Academy offices in Missoula!   As previously announced, open enrollment ended on our “Guaranteed Enrollment Deadline” on January 18, 2017.  However, we have added sections to as many courses as possible to keep enrollments open.  A list of open classes appears at this link: HERE.  The list is updated in real time.  Enrollment in open courses is first come, first served.  We are unable to reserve spots for closed courses.

The final deadline for enrollment is Monday, January 30, 2017, at 6pm.  We do want to caution you that students starting late in the program often experience trouble getting caught up to speed.  We ask that you assist the student and MTDA teacher by pushing that student to get logged in right away and completing assignments.

If you have any questions, help is just an email (support@montanadigitalacademy.org) or phone call (406-203-1812) away!

Upcoming deadline

Attention site facilitators: As a reminder, Wednesday, January 18, 2017, is the guaranteed enrollment deadline for high school original credit for Spring 2017.  After tomorrow, MTDA will be sectioning off courses and full courses will be closed to enrollment.

As always, we are eager to answer your questions. Contact support@montanadigitalacademy.org for prompt, friendly service!

9/26/2016: Credit Recovery Progress Report Available

Available again this fall, MTDA has a weekly progress report available to sites that utilize our credit recovery program.  The report is not automatically generated and first-time credit recovery support staff need to schedule an appointment with MTDA staff to discuss how to read and interpret the data.

If you are interested in receiving the weekly report, please contact the MTDA staff via the help desk, support@montanadigitalacademy.org.

9/26/2016: High School Original Credit Announcement

Tuesday, September 27, 2016, represents the final drop deadline for the Fall 2016 semester.  Local facilitators are responsible for putting drop requests into the MTDA student information system.  Directions on how to do so appear in our facilitator handbook.  A convenient short link to the click-by-click is available here:http://mtda.link/droprequest.

Dropping students that are inactive, no longer in your school, or transferred to a face-to-face program is extremely important to conserve limited MTDA resources as all students that stay in the program past the add/drop period incur program costs.  We rely on you for your assistance here.  Thank you!

After the drop deadline, students that drop the program should receive an appropriate designation on their local transcript.
