Updates for 2017-2018 School Year

Welcome to the Dukes Digital Academy this year. Below is some important information for the start of the school year.
The first important piece of information is that we will be starting the DDA Online Calendar on Monday August 21st. The lab hours all year will be from 12 to 4:30 Monday through Thursday. Starting on August 21st your student is expected to report for classes at 12. All students will be attending lab this first two weeks prior to school starting. A few of you have alerted me already as to scheduling conflicts, specifically centering around the Stark County Fair. If you and I have discussed possible scheduling conflicts, kindly send me an email to remind me of the specifics.
The second piece of important information is for 9th through 12th graders. We will be handing out laptops for 9th-12th graders by appointment. Hopefully you received the all call that went out yesterday. You can sign-up for an appointment to pickup your laptop by visiting the marlingtonlocal.org website. Under the Students menu click on the link for High School Student Laptop Pick-Up and schedule a time. These times start on August 16th. Also be sure to fill out your online forms for the year and if you are taking the laptop home you will need to pay you Insurance fee before picking up the laptop.
The last piece of information I have for you is there will be an updated student interface this year for the FuelEd courses. It is exciting and will benefit the student greatly. The content and online teachers are the same.
I hope every one has a great last week of summer and I look forward to working with your student this year.
