My School Online (MSO) is Miami-Dade County Public Schools’ (M-DCPS) distance learning option for those students in grades K-12 who wish to continue their education full-time through innovative learning environments but still maintain their connection to their enrolled schools. It provides an option for those parents who prefer an alternative to face-to-face instruction due to the medical vulnerability of the child or another family member who resides in the same household. MSO is designed based on feedback received from parents on distance learning during the recent school closures.
