We are making the decision to go ahead and cancel school for tomorrow, Monday, November 26th, due to projected icy conditions, especially on our rural county roads in the northern areas of our district.  All district offices will also be closed.  Please check your school web page or Facebook page for any school specific announcements of activities.

For those involved with the FFA Fruit sale, Mr. Davis will be at the AG Building from noon until 3 p.m. for anyone wanting to turn in orders.  For those who cannot come in, you will have until 3 p.m. on the first day back to turn orders in.

Please be safe out there!

BGR-1 Families,

I am writing to let you know that school will be cancelled today, Thursday, November 15, 2018.  While much of our outlying areas are fairly clear, the roads in the Southern portion of the district have significant accumulation.  Out of an overabundance of caution, we are cancelling. 

Be safe out there.

FAQs for “Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program” (MOCAP)


In accordance with SB 603:

Students who have been enrolled full time in a public or charter school for at least one semester immediately prior, may enroll part-time or full-time in the Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program. Enrollment must be approved by Bowling Green Public Schools. A student with a documented medical or psychological condition that prevented the student from attending school during the previous semester shall be exempt from the requirement that a student is enrolled full-time in and attended a public school for at least one semester in order to enroll in Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program courses.


What does the law say?



Is this Board policy?

BGR-1 adopted a new policy and related forms and procedures in October of 2018.  Below is a link to that policy:



Does this apply to K-12 students?

What is the process for a student/family to request this online learning opportunity?

Will exceptional learners such as ELL, 504, or IEP students be provided support?

Support will be provided through the vendor.


How will this effect MSHSAA eligibility?
