Virtual learning is an alternative to the traditional, face-to-face learning experience. Certified teachers meet online with students to teach lessons, lead discussions and provide personalized learning support. Full and part-time virtual learning programs are available to all eligible students. In addition, virtual learning days can be implemented for all students as an alternative to snow days.
Virtual programs provide learning opportunities through any combination of live lessons, small group and individual instruction, and independent coursework. Successful students demonstrate motivation to learn, effective time management and self-advocacy skills, readiness for independent learning and technology proficiency.
MISSOURI COURSE ACCESS & VIRTUAL LEARNING PROGRAM (MOCAP)
MOCAP offers K-12 students equal access to a wide range of high-quality courses and interactive online learning that is neither time nor place dependent. Because virtual instruction can be an effective education option for some students, there may be courses available either through a district-provided virtual option or through MOCAP.
The enrollment process varies depending on virtual program choice, the number of courses the student will enroll in, and the presence of a student IEP.
