In the 2017 legislative session, the Missouri General Assembly passed a law referred to as MOCAP which allows more access to online learning for Missouri students. The intent of MOCAP is to:
- Expand the range of courses and opportunities offered to students
- Offer courses for students where there are no qualified teachers to teach the course
- Offer students a course not offered by their school district
- Provide high quality instruction to students in extenuating circumstances that prevent them from attending school
To qualify for MOCAP consideration, it must be in the best interest of the student and the student must meet the following criteria:
- The student must be enrolled full-time and have attended a Missouri public school the previous semester. In most cases, the course requested is not offered in any way by the district.
- Taking the course would not cause the student to exceed full time enrollment.
A team consisting of administrators and counselors will determine eligibility for MOCAP. Applications for MOCAP must be completed and turned in to the counseling center by the end of the registration process, late applications must be submitted no later than the first week of each new semester.
Please contact your building counselor for more information.
