The Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program (MOCAP) has developed a catalog of virtual online courses for students. Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, students will be able to take an entire course 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, flexibility in scheduling, and interactive online learning. The Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and the State Board of Education oversee administration and quality assurance activities such as related content and delivery of courses. Local Education Agencies (LEAs) that provide virtual education outside of MOCAP are responsible for ensuring alignment and other statutory requirements are met.
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). 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.
The Johnson County R-VII School District’s preferred online program provider is Launch. Launch is operated and overseen by Springfield Public Schools in Springfield, Missouri. Courses are designed by Missouri teachers and aligned to the state standards. Traditional courses are NCAA and MSHSAA approved. 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 and may enroll similar to enrolling for traditional on campus classes. For more information, please contact Crest Ridge High School between 8;00am-4:00pm Tuesday-Friday.
If a student wishes to pursue an online class offering through other MOCAP options outside of Launch, he/she will need to schedule a meeting with the high school counselor to discuss options.
