Fall 2019 High School Original Credit Briefing
Counselors, Administrators, and Site Facilitators

Notice to students and parents: This information is intended for distribution through districts and may contain details that do not apply to your local district’s program.  If you are interested in enrolling in courses with Montana Digital Academy, your first contact should be with the counseling department or administration of your local school to discuss what is available locally.

Important note for districts: Enrollment for Fall 2019 is open NOW!   Pending the Governor’s signature on House Bill 2, MTDA has received its requested budget for the next two fiscal years.  We will continue to work to efficiently manage MTDA resources to meet the needs of your students in this and future semesters.  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.  The only course limitations we will enforce this fall are related to the two course areas in which we have limited staffing: Latin and German.  We continue to seek additional instructors in those areas and will add sections when possible!


  • Please review our student registration page for information on data collection, entrance counseling, and student registration in the site facilitator handbook.
  • Registration for Fall 2019 courses is open now.  Please prioritize getting in known enrollments as soon as you can in the spring or late summer.  We will again enforce an “Initial Course Request Deadline” on Wednesday, August 28, 2019.  MTDA will finalize sections on that day and assign teachers.  We may or may not have additional slots open in any particular course after this day.  For any class with open slots, the final enrollment deadline is September 6, 2019. If you choose to enroll a student on or after the course start date on September 3, 2019, we ask that you take an active role in helping that student get in the course and caught up to pace.  Students that are enrolled after the course starts have a lower success rate.
  • Please use the enrollment counseling forms when enrolling students and give a copy of the form to the student after enrollment.  This form helps decrease confusion on behalf of the student and their parents and opens up communication lines.  Our enrollment counseling page is here: LINK.
