The Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program (MOCAP) has developed a catalog of virtual online courses for students. Parkway students are 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. Credits earned from these courses will count toward Parkway graduation requirements.
The state-approved course catalog and approved vendor list are available HERE.
For students who wish to take a course through the MOCAP program, we encourage families to consider our preferred, third-party, online vendor, Launch. If students wish to access a different course through another MOCAP provider, they are welcome to do so.
The application for MOCAP courses for the 2022-2023 school year is available HERE.
Once an application has been submitted, a school team (or IEP/504 team) will review the request and make a “best educational interest” determination by evaluating the following:
(1) Student has the pre-requisite for the requested course
(2) Student has been successful in previous online coursework
(3) Student will have access to academic supports that he/she has previously utilized and benefited from
(4) Student course request(s) will meet special education and/or 504 needs
(5) Student course requests will not exceed 7 scheduled classes
If the request is approved, the student will be enrolled with the appropriate MOCAP vendor.
Students requesting Missouri Course Access (MOCAP) courses must do so within the district enrollment period, which ends 10-days prior to the start of each semester. Students requesting a course after the enrollment period may result in a denial of the request since it is not in the best educational interest of a student to begin a MOCAP course mid-semester. The student may be approved to enroll in the same course during the following semester's enrollment period.
