•  District Initiated Cancellation of MOA Appeal

    When students in the Midland Online Learning Academy (MOA) are not engaging in the content or struggling academically, the need for interventions or a change in learning environments may be necessary. In the event a student participating in remote learning is failing or has unexcused absences, a parent can request for the student to be moved to in-person learning, or the Midland Independent School District can cancel remote learning for the student with the requirement to notify parents of the cancellation decision. 

    In the event of a district initiated cancellation of online learning, a parent may appeal if they disagree.  Continuation in MOA may be appealed in one of two ways:

    • Submitting a *medical exemption
      • This exemption requires a healthcare provider certification that the child or an individual in his/her household has a high-risk medical condition as defined by the Centers for Disease Control. 
      • Medical Exemption Form
    • Requesting a transition meeting
      • If a parent requests a transition meeting (which can be held virtually), the campus will contact you to schedule a transition meeting with the Online Learning Committee.  The meeting will occur no sooner than 3 school days after it is requested, and the student may continue to learn remotely until the meeting has been held.
      • Parents will be notified of the results of the meeting via a letter including meeting minutes. 
      • The decision of the Online Learning Committee is final.  

     *A Medical Certification does not excuse a student from academic requirements from the Midland Independent School District and the State of Texas.  Students with a Medical Certification are subject to attendance laws. Regular engagement in the content is required while in MOA to reflect attendance for that course/subject.
