Enrollment will remain open for high school original credit classes until January 26, 2018, with the exception of classes that fill. At this point, we have room in the vast majority of courses! Enroll away!
Good day from the MTDA offices in Missoula!
Montana Digital Academy offices at the University of Montana are closed on Monday, 15 January 2018, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Our staff will be monitoring the helpdesk throughout the weekend, support (at) montanadigitalacademy.org.
Attention all facilitators and local support folks:
High school original credit finals are next week, January 16-18, 2018. We have already sent out proctoring information to both students and facilitators. If this process is unfamiliar to you or believe you haven’t received a needed notification, please contact MTDA support right away, firstname.lastname@example.org, for assistance.
We need your help locally to identify students that need proctoring and then set up the appropriate environment. Our final windows is limited to the three days next week. Please assist by connecting with your original credit students to confirm whether or not they require a proctored final and then set up the needed environment. Thank you!
The high school credit recovery programs ends on January 19, 2018. As in past semesters, we have a process for extensions in this program. All facilitators and local support should review our policy and procedure right away on our Fall 2017 briefing page.
If you have any questions about this process, don’t hesitate to contact us.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, let’s connect and chat! Contact us via our office phone or support desk.
Per our academic calendar, we will be running a limited schedule from December 21, 2017, to January 1, 2018.
During that time:
From all of our teachers and staff at MTDA, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
We want to convey to all of the schools and students we serve that we have been able to efficiently manage MTDA resources so that we are in a position to meet your enrollment needs for the upcoming spring semester. We continue to ask that you assist us in making the best use of MTDA resources by thoughtfully and deliberately enrolling students that you feel will be successful in online classes. While there still may be some uncertainty in what the long-term future will bring, concerning funding levels, we can say with confidence that we will be able to fulfill your enrollment needs for the Spring 2018 semester.
The MTDA Team
After careful analysis of our budget and enrollment data, we are able to add additional enrollments for the Spring 2018 MLS program, across all language options. On Wednesday, December 13, 2017, at 8:00 am, MTDA will open up five additional slots per section, for a total of 55 new enrollment slots between the two course sessions.
If you have any questions, please contact the support desk!
Students in many MTDA original credit courses are required to take final exams in a proctored, secure exam environment.
Rationale: Per the request of both MTDA teachers and participating school district administrators and teachers, MTDA will ask local districts to create a proctored environment for class finals should that be necessary for specific MTDA courses. You can see a list of exams that require proctoring starting December 4, 2017, on this page: PUBLIC Link.
Procedures for proctored exams:

Please, direct questions about proctoring to Christen Cole, MTDA Instructional Registrar, email@example.com, 406-203-1812. Thank you for your cooperation.
Hello from Montana Digital Academy!
Montana Digital Academy will be closed from 3 pm, Wednesday, November 22, 2017, to 8 am, Monday, November 27, 2017, for the Thanksgiving holiday.
During that time, our online classrooms will remain open, however, our offices and help desk will be closed. There will also be no teacher services available.
On November 13, 2017, we will open student enrollment for the Spring 2018 semester classes. We realize that this has been a rather confusing year with all of the budget uncertainty. How that will be resolved remains to be seen, as the legislature heads into a special session. MTDA remains a candidate for an additional cut, per the budget rules passed by the 2017 Legislature.
What we want to convey to all of the schools and students we serve is that in spite of the budget challenges we have been able to efficiently manage MTDA resources so that we are in a position to meet the needs of your students this spring. We continue to ask you to assist us in making the best use of MTDA resources by thoughtfully and deliberately enrolling students that you feel will be successful in online classes. While there still is uncertainty in what the near and/or long-term future will bring, with respect to budget cuts and funding levels, we do know that we will be able to manage the 2018 spring term to allow us to fulfill your enrollment needs.
For more information on specific programs, please see the “Spring 2018 Information” menu on the left-hand side of this school portal page.
