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

Good morning from MTDA offices in Missoula! Moodle students will notice that our classrooms look a little different today. We have slapped up a coat of virtual paint and made some minor changes, however, the site functions as normal.
If you have any problems, don’t be afraid to put in a support ticket, support (at) montanadigitalacademy.org and we are more than happy to help!
Hello high school original credit students,
Hello and welcome to the Fall 2014 original credit program at Montana Digital Academy. We are thrilled that you are joining us for what we hope is a productive and engaging fall semester.
Usernames and Passwords
At of today, all student usernames and passwords have been emailed to students. If you do not have your username and password, please contact the MTDA help desk at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are a past enrollee at MTDA, a new username will NOT be emailed to you and you should use your existing login and password. If you don’t remember that login, please contact the help desk.
Our original credit Fall 2014 semester will start today, Tuesday, September 2, 2014. Classes will be open in the virtual classroom by 8am. It is important that you get up and started this week as there are assignments and expectations for you in the course. Students that are not logged in and up to pace by the early weeks of the program risk being dropped from the course.
The last day of the program is Wednesday, January 14, 2015. No assignments will be accepted after 5pm on that day.
Although the virtual classrooms are open for access and student work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, our classes are considered “in session” Monday-Friday, per our academic calendar located at http://montanadigitalacademy.org/programs/mtda-academic-calendars/
. Please note that MTDA’s calendar may differ from your local school calendar and you are expected to follow the MTDA calendar for this course.
As part of your first day activities, you will sign a course contract that details the expectations of you in this program. Please read that carefully.
Remember that our online learning format requires an investment of time: we would expect students to take 3-7 hours per course per week to keep pace, so, be sure you are being careful to plan for enough time to be successful in this course!
MTDA has a brief orientation program for students and parents. You may access our orientation-on-demand program available by clicking here:link
. Included in that video is how and where to login.
Throughout the semester, please don’t be afraid to contact your instructor for help as soon as you run into problems. Additionally, you may contact the MTDA help desk at email@example.com for technical support or help contacting an instructor if you are not getting a response. We want you to be successful in online courses!
Have a GREAT semester!
