September 6th: High School Original Credit Opens; Username and Password Information

September6

Hello from the MTDA offices at the University of Montana in Missoula!  Our teachers and staff have been working throughout the weekend to put final touches on our Fall 2016 classes and we are open for business!  Courses are open at 8am today and we’re ready for students.

For those new to facilitating and assisting students locally, please note that usernames and passwords are sent directly to students via email, both at the time of program registration AND in their course enrollment email.  If you have a student that doesn’t have a username and password, there are instructions in the site facilitator handbook on how to look up usernames and reset passwords.  This is a short link to that information: http://mtda.link/resetpassword.

Our experience is clear: getting up and started on time is extraordinarily important to student success in this format.  Please do all you can to assist students in getting up and running.  Let us know how we can help!

High School Original Credit: Open Enrollment Closed; Most Classes Still Have Spaces Available

Hello from the Montana Digital Academy offices in Missoula!   As previously announced, open enrollment ended on our “Guaranteed Enrollment Deadline” on September 1, 2016.  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.

The final deadline for enrollment is Tuesday, September 13, 2016, 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!

September 1st: High School Original Credit Guaranteed Enrollment Deadline is Today!

Calendar 1st

Good morning from Missoula!

Remember, today, September 1, 2016, is the guaranteed enrollment deadline for high school original credit courses.

What does “guaranteed enrollment” mean?  At the end of the day today, MTDA staff will section off all original credit courses and secure appropriate staffing for the courses.  Starting tomorrow, MTDA may continue to have open slots in courses, but, once they fill, no additional slots are available for enrollment, no matter the circumstance.  We may receive drops in courses, however, MTDA has no fair means of keeping a “waiting list,” so, you will need to monitor the open course list and enroll if slots open.

The absolute final deadline for enrollment is Tuesday, September 13, 2016.  However, past data suggests that students that start late in their online course do not do as well as those that start their course on time.

Please contact the MTDA offices if you have any questions!

Have a great day!

Attention Summer 2016 Credit Recovery Students

MTDA will be transitioning our teacher accounts from the spring teacher group to our summer teacher group this afternoon.  This process will require adapting each credit recovery classroom in anticipation of the official start of our summer program on Monday morning.  To ensure that we don’t miss any assignment notifications, PLEASE DO NOT SUBMIT ANY MASTERY ASSIGNMENTS from 2pm Friday, June 10, to 8am on Monday, June 13.  You may still work on completion assignments, take any assessment available to you and work on notes and study guides.
