  • When I enroll my student, is it for the entire school year?

    Posted by:

    Families who wish to enroll their PK-8th grade student into WDMCS Online will commit to full-time enrollment for the entire 2021-22 school year. This is different from the 2020-21 school year when parents were asked to choose online or in-person for each semester.

  • How do I enroll?

    Posted by:

    Parents will complete a WDMCS Online Enrollment Confirmation Request form. This will reserve your student’s spot in the online classroom or place your student on a waiting list, if needed. Parents will also complete a parent agreement. Secondary students must also complete a student agreement.

    Parents will STILL complete the annual enrollment process that takes place each summer.
