Welcome to the Digital Learning Center Webpage
Currently MLSD Digital is undergoing multiple program changes for the start of the 2021-2022 school year that will allow us to continue to serve our students and meet their various educational needs. During this process, we will update this webpage as the program develops.
*If you are a current MLSD Digital Student seeking information for the remainder of the 2020-2021 School Year please view the "2020 Student Information" below.*
Attending Digital Learning Center 2021-2022:
Students wishing to attend the Digital Learning Center for the upcoming school year can apply for enrollment by completing the application located here. Prior to completing the application we would highly encourage all students/families to consider the following:
- Is it important for my student to have face-face interaction when learning?
- Is my student an independent learner that enjoys discovering things on their own?
- Is my student self motivated and organized?
- Do we have reliable internet connection?
- As a family are we able to set a school schedule for our student at home and support their progress?
We understand that an online format may also be needed as an educational bridge for some students due to severe health issues, traumatic life events, and/or other unplanned circumstances that have made in person attendance an obstacle impacting a student’s overall academic success.
New Online Curriculum: We will be utilizing the Edgenuity online curriculum starting the Fall of 2021.
2020 STUDENT INFORMATION
To Students and Families Considering Digital Coursework
First and foremost, thank you for advocating for your and/or your child's education. We appreciate you looking into possible options to increase the potential for successful completion of middle school and high school. We recognize that not all students learn in the same manner or have the same educational needs. Our ultimate goal is to provide digital coursework as an option when it's necessary. Digital coursework is not the most ideal approach for the majority of students. It does not lend itself to collaborating with peers and being involved in rich classroom discussions, something that research for student learning clearly supports. However, we know that in some cases, Digital coursework can benefit students on a temporary basis. The ultimate goal for our digital teachers and administration is to help students transition back into a classroom setting.Kristi Hofheins
Executive Director of Teaching and Learning
Some criteria that would qualify a student to participate in either part-time or full-time digital status include the following:
- Experiencing severe health issues, making consistent attendance at school nearly impossible.
- Necessary to be home to care for your child(ren).
- Credit deficiency.
- PE can only be taken online to acquire 1 of the 1.5 credit requirements and that student's course load is already full of rigorous coursework (11th and 12th grade).
- Traumatic life event that excludes a student from success in a traditional classroom setting.
- Adding flexibility to student schedules to allow a student to stay on track for graduation.
- Discipline issues.
