MDLP Summer School - Online

Online classes take a great deal of discipline and are for students who are driven and self-starters.

If you plan to take an Mesa Distance Learning Program (MDLP) class online over the summer, you will need to do two things:

  1. Register for the class online beginning March 26th, 2014
  2. The class will cost $150
  3. Fill out a MDLP Request Form (this is found in the Counseling Office) and return the top sheet to your counselor.

Beware: Students taking the distance learning classes at a school other than MDLP will be required to take the district's final exam for that course and must earn 70% or higher on the exam to be granted credit. In addition, the course must be completed by June 30th. It is important to check with your counselor prior to taking the class.
