FAQs
May I enroll my non-high school student in just one or two online classes?
No, at this time our district does not have that option, it is only available at the high school level.

What is the difference between virtual school and home school?
Virtual schools have an established curriculum, the student has an assigned teacher and, at the high school level, the courses count towards a high school diploma.  It is important to realize though, that online school is not necessarily easier for the parent.  The parent (or learning coach) plays an essential role in keeping the student on track, helping the student navigate the assignments and providing the first line of support.  

Does my student have to enroll at the beginning of the school year?
MCPASD residents may switch to the eSchool at any time prior to Spring Break.  We are not  able to accept any new Open Enrollment families for the 2016-17 school year.

Who do I contact with further questions or to enroll my students in the program?
You can contact Kim Gauen at kgauen@mcpasd.k12.wi.us or call the 21st Century eSchool office at 608-829-9648 for additional information.
