Missouri Course Access Program
In 2018, Senate Bill 603 was passed establishing the Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program (MOCAP). MOCAP is intended to provide access to online courses for all Missouri K-12 students needing flexible academic programming through online coursework.
Online instruction can be an effective education option for some students and Park Hill will continue to offer a variety of online courses to meet student needs. As an alternative option, however, eligible students may request to enroll in online courses offered through MOCAP during the regular enrollment window. The Park Hill School District process is outlined below.
Students and parents/guardians wishing to initiate enrollment in courses outside of district offerings must contact the school counseling department at the student's home school to begin the enrollment process.
Students enrolled in an online course that do not make adequate progress within 10 days of the term will be dropped from the MOCAP Courses. Likewise, after an initial 10 day grace period, schedule changes will not be accepted and students will need to remain in the MOCAP online course(s) the remainder of a term unless approved by administration.
Online Course Enrollment Sequence
- Students select the Park Hill online course offerings when possible. These courses are taught by Park Hill teachers and are NCAA approved. Park Hill courses align with the face-to-face equivalent courses and have been developed by district content experts. See the Park Hill Online Academy page for more.
- If a student needs a course outside of the district and the course is part of the student four-year plan, the student may select a course offering from the approved list provided by the counselor. At this time, the preferred vendors providing outside courses are Edgenuity and Launch. All courses will be taught by a certified Missouri instructor. View all course catalogs: MOCAP Website.
- If a course is not provided by Edgenuity or Launch, the school counseling team and district online learning program facilitator will determine the best course(s) and vendor offered by MOCAP and provide enrollment. Students enrolled online may not change providers in the middle of a term.
