The Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP) offers students equal access to various quality courses and educational opportunities. Children attending public schools in Missouri have a right to participate in the Missouri course access and virtual school program as provided in State Law. Because virtual instruction can be an effective educational option, some students take advantage of opportunities through our MOCAP Partner – LAUNCH. Additionally, parents can choose another provider on the MOCAP website.

Please contact Keonna Shelton for more information about virtual learning opportunities.

Download our Board Policy Here

As required by Missouri statute Section 161.670 (effective August 28, 2022), any student under the age of twenty-one in grades kindergarten through twelve shall be allowed to enroll in Missouri course access and virtual school program courses of his or her choice as part of the student’s annual course load each year or a full-time virtual school option.

There are currently no active RFP’s
