MPS School Schedule

At MPS Online

MPS Online will continue to offer online classes that include, core classes: English, Math, Science, Social Studies, Health and Fitness. Along with core classes, MPS Online offers elective courses: Modern Art History, Theatre Arts, Creative Writing, Earth Science, Psychology, and Financial Literacy. MPS Online continues to offer courses on an asynchronous schedule, therefore this will allow students to log in at any time of the day. Students will have the opportunity if needed, to connect with teachers for support via email, Odysseyware message and by appointment. An asynchronous schedule allows working students and young adults the flexibility to access their classwork virtually at any time of the day. Students on Asynchronous schedules are still responsible for completing work in a timely order. Due dates are posted in the learning platform Odysseyware to allow students to complete their classwork on time. Unfortunately, MPS Online does not loan chromebooks or laptops to students. It will be the family’s responsibility to provide one.
