for
Counselors, Administrators and Site Facilitators

A 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 to the counseling department or administration of your local school to discuss what is available locally.

(Looking for credit recovery information?  Please look here.)

Montana Digital Academy is pleased to announce open enrollment for its Spring 2015 program for high school original credit. Note: This information is accurate at the time of publication.  We will make changes to this page as details change.

Registration:

  • Please review our student registration page for information on data collection, entrance counseling and student registration for Fall.  That page is located here: link.
  • Registration for Spring 2015 courses opened on November 10, 2014.  Please prioritize getting in known enrollments before your holiday break to help MTDA plan for the spring program.  We will again enforce our “guaranteed enrollment” deadline on January 15, 2015.  We will guarantee placement for students enrolled on or before this date, but, will not add new sections after.  Please plan your local enrollment around this deadline.
  • Schools should carefully scrutinize enrollments for students that didn’t pass the fall semester of a two-semester course.
  • All MTDA courses are enrolled by semester only and schools will need to enroll students in 2nd semesters of year-long courses.
  • 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.
  • Many year-long courses are not eligible for mid-year enrollment.  Please contact the support desk (support@montanadigitalacademy.org) to discuss any particular student situations.
  • Schools that anticipate staffing changes for Spring 2015 should contact MTDA ASAP (support@montanadigitalacademy.org) to discuss making sure that new staffing is connected to MTDA services to guarantee continuity of service.

Program Information:

  • Our course list for 2014-2015 is here: link.
  • Our 2014-2015 Academic Calendar is located here: link.  PLEASE NOTE that our academic calendar is fundamentally the same as in past years, HOWEVER, some districts are starting a week later this year.  PLEASE TAKE THIS INTO ACCOUNT WHEN SCHEDULING.
  • Our 2014-2015 course catalog is located here: link.
  • Information on dual credit courses is located here: link.
  • Students taking AP(tm) courses should be aware that most AP courses require purchasing a textbook, which is the responsibility of the student or the local enrolling district.  Book information is in the course descriptions above.  AP courses that have newly adopted curriculum may not have information available until August.  Generally speaking, AP courses are not eligible for mid-year enrollment.  Please contact MTDA (support@montanadigitalacademy.org) to discuss particular situations.
  • Information on orientation webinars is located here: link. MTDA strongly suggests that local schools direct both students and parents to our orientation opportunities to help answer their questions and clear up confusion.
