The core beliefs of MDA are succinctly stated as follows:
The efficient delivery of educational services and resources is critical to the program.
Ongoing planning, assessment, and evaluation drive a growing, dynamic organization and provide for the effective use of resources.
Empowering the learning community through technology is a vital necessity.
Sound educational decisions are driven by accurate data.
A well-trained and talented staff that continually upgrades its skills is a requirement for a successful organization.
Using systemic processes coupled with creative approaches will foster rich educational experiences at reasonable operational costs.
We will strive to take students at their current academic levels, build upon that foundation, and increase achievement at developmentally appropriate rates and levels. We will do this with the assistance of technology and competent instructors in a cost-efficient manner. Our ultimate goal is to provide applicable skills that will allow students to be lifelong learners and intelligent decision makers.Another important factor woven into the eLearning program is the belief that effective education is a cooperative venture between the students, teachers, support staff, and the primary caregivers. Furthermore, in many instances the local public schools, organizations, and social services can provide valuable support. In short, a teaming process is critical to the success of this program.
