Virtual Learning

Fordland R-3 School District works to provide students with access to various learning opportunities in order to help them succeed in life after graduation. The District realizes that children have unique learning styles, and we are here to adapt to your child’s needs.

 In 2018, state law changed to require school districts to advertise and pay for virtual courses approved in the Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program (MOCAP). MOCAP is operated by DESE. As required by the law, DESE screens course vendors and lists courses available for students to take.

 A student is eligible to enroll in a course through the district if the student resides in and is enrolled in the district full-time, and the student attended a public or charter school at least one semester immediately prior to enrolling in the MOCAP course.  A student may be denied enrollment in a virtual course if it is not in the best educational interest of the student. 

 In accordance with 161.670 RSMo and School Board policies - IGCD and IGCE, registration and payment for MOCAP online courses will be completed by Fordland School District for those students who qualify.  Parents and students interested in learning more about virtual courses can contact their building principal.

 If you have any other questions related to virtual courses you may contact Dr. Chris Ford at 417-767-2298.
