Misconception on MTDA: This week it was brought to my attention by parents there is a misconception about our high school classes and the Montana Digital Academy Classes. It seems there are some who believe that MTDA classes are used as core classes rather than having face to face instruction with certified teachers. This perception is false! We use MTDA classes for foreign languages, credit recovery, and elective enhancement. Our required core classes are taught face to face by certified teachers. Please do not hesitate to call with any questions regarding instruction at any level at Charlo.

Question of the Week: None submitted.

Viking View Valentine's Day Edition

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Question of the Week: When will out of district applications be available for the 2024-2025 school year? Beginning on July 1, 2024 a new law takes effect concerning non resident students attending schools. This law changed some previous requirements for school districts so there is work being done on new school board policy by all Montana Schools. Charlo is currently working through the policy as discussion items at monthly board meetings. We hope to have an approve policy by April. After the policy has been adopted by the school board then applications will become available.

If you have a question of the week please email it to [email protected].

Second Semester: We are two weeks into the second semester already. Mid-terms are on Feb. 22. One thing all us can work on is planning ahead so please stay in touch with your student’s progress in the classroom. Given our student information system, email, and a simple phone call; it’s easier than ever to keep up with how your student is doing in the classroom. Don’t wait until mid-terms or the last week of the quarter to check on grades. If you have questions about monitoring student progress please contact the office at 644-2206.

Attendance: Showing up is the number one reason for success in the classroom, on the team, or at your job. Conversely, poor attendance is the greatest challenge to accomplishing goals and being successful in academics, athletics, and at your place of work. Please stress the importance of good attendance. Stress the importance of being on time to class. They are important characteristics that can make or break achievement in all facets of life!
