MISSOURI COURSE ACCESS AND VIRTUAL SCHOOL PROGRAM
Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program (MOCAP) was established in 2007 as the state’s online school. It was previously known as Missouri Virtual Instruction Program (MOVIP). Currently, MOCAP offers courses for 9th through 12th grade and is expanding to grades K-12. Students can take courses from any Internet-connected computer, available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. MOCAP's mission is to offer Missouri students equal access to a wide range of high quality courses, and interactive online learning that is neither time nor place dependent.
Local school districts and charter schools may use their own preferred online provider. The Ash Grove R-IV School District’s preferred provider is Launch. Launch is operated and overseen by the Springfield, MO R-XII School District and currently offers over 120 courses. Courses are designed by Missouri teachers and aligned to the state standards. A formal review process is built into all course development to ensure high quality and rigor. Students wishing to take advantage of online learning opportunities will do so through Launch. If a student wishes to pursue an online class offering through other MoCAP options outside of Launch, he/she will not be considered a member of the Ash Grove R-IV School District.
Students participating in the MOCAP (virtual school) option will need to provide their own devices and internet access. If your student chooses MOCAP for the 2022-2023 school year, please return any school devices prior to the start of the 2022-2023 school year. If you have any questions about technology options available in the general public, please feel free to contact the CIT Director, Austin Houp. Email: email@example.com
