District Legal Notice
Because virtual instruction can be an effective education option for some students, the District offers virtual courses to students by contracting for those services through Launch, the District’s preferred virtual education provider. In addition, eligible students may enroll in virtual courses offered through the Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP) particularly if the preferred course is not offered through Launch. The District will accept all grades and credits earned through Launch and MOCAP.
The District will pay the costs of a virtual course only if the District has first approved the student's enrollment in the course as described in Board policy. Even if a student or his or her parents/guardians pay the costs for a virtual course, the student or parents/guardians should meet with the counselor prior to enrollment to ensure that the course is consistent with the student's academic and personal goals. The District is not required to provide students access to or pay for courses beyond the equivalent of full-time enrollment.
Students taking courses virtually are subject to District policies, procedures and rules applicable to students enrolled in traditional courses including, but not limited to, the District's discipline code and prohibitions on academic dishonesty, discrimination, harassment, bullying and cyberbullying.
