Virtual Course Enrollment
SPS students who wish to take virtual courses for the 2023-2024 school year through Launch Virtual Learning may contact Dr. Nichole Lemmon (email@example.com) for assistance. Enrollment is open for all students grades K-12.
The Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP) law was passed in 2018 and expanded in 2022. Under the MOCAP law provisions, students may enroll in a per-course or full-time virtual programming through a MOCAP provider at no cost to the family. The MOCAP program is administered by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. For more information, and to view course provider information, please visit mocap.mo.gov.
Springfield Public Schools utilizes Launch Virtual Learning as their online course Provider. Guardians who elect per-course enrollments for a vendor other than Launch, may make their request through the Director of Virtual Learning, Dr. Nichole Lemmon (firstname.lastname@example.org). Guardians who wish to use full-time Launch programming may reach out to the Launch office at 417-523-0417 or email@example.com. If you wish to use a full-time provider other than Launch, please reach out to the vendor directly.
Enrollment in the MOCAP program as a full-time student will remove the student from MSHSAA eligibility, impacting participation in sports and activities.
Please note: Students who receive special education services must first contact the resident district or building to ensure appropriate steps are taken prior to enrolling in a virtual course or moving to a full-time virtual schedule.
Additional information regarding virtual course processes and procedures can be found in the Virtual Course Handbook.
