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?

Yes, beginning Spring Semester 2019.


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

Individuals will follow the same school registration practices (and timelines) as they would for face-to-face classes to access this opportunity:

·         Elementary students/parents coordinate with the principal and counseling staff

·         Secondary students/parents coordinate with the counselor following general registration process procedures.


What courses are offered?

                Contact DESE for a list of approved courses.

Will the district provide technology, supervision, or a space to access this online learning?

The District is not obligated to provide student computers, equipment or internet access except for eligible students with disability in compliance with federal and state law. Space access (i.e. a place at the school building for students to work on their MOCAP coursework) will follow current BGR-1 procedures.


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?

MSHSAA eligibility must be approved by the district athletic director.


Could a request for online learning be denied?

Yes, denial is a possibility if the request is not in the best educational interest of the student. Below are some possible reasons for denial.


______Requested course is already available through BGR-1;

______Student has not been a full-time student in a public school for at least one full semester prior to the request;

______Course prerequisite courses have not been completed;

______ Course request does not align with BGR-1 graduation requirements

______Student is already currently carrying maximum academic load;

______Student has not demonstrated success in previous online courses (if applicable);



If denied, is there an appeal process?

Dear Students and Parents:

Welcome to a brand new year in Bowling Green R-1 Schools! We are glad to have you as part of our school family and hope you are looking forward to the 2018-2019 academic year.

The beginning of a new school year, like the dawning of a new day, reminds us that the future holds infinite possibilities.

Our teachers are ready to welcome our students, and our school buildings are ready for the new school year, with improvements such as newly retiled floors and new carpeting, repainted classrooms and hallways, a newly paved road at Bowling Green Elementary, a refurbished track at the High School, new district LED sign, new security upgrades to our entrances and the Frankford library, and a new school bus that will be deployed for the first time tomorrow morning, among many others.  We are also very excited to have a School Resource Officer, Officer Mark Bair of the Pike County Sheriff’s Office, assigned to all four building locations for added security.

Our staff has been busy this summer with Math and English Language Arts Curriculum writing, Grade Level Team meetings, Math Pedagogy sessions, Student Behavior Intervention Support Team and Trauma Informed Practices trainings, Assessment Training, and a host of other topics.

We had a successful Meet the Teacher night at all four locations and a well-attended Pre-K orientation for our additional sections, and Meet the Bobcat at the stadium was filled with school spirit and great anticipation.

As the new school year begins, please remember that the most meaningful factor in experiencing student success is parental support.  This is achieved through partnering with the school offering concern, participation, and involvement in the life of the school. In order to help your child attain their goals, your involvement and partnership is crucial, whether it be through attending parent-teacher conferences, volunteering in your child’s school, or most importantly, reinforcing the importance of on-time school attendance, appropriate behavior and class participation, and completion of schoolwork.

As a reminder, you can find important announcements on our different schools’ Facebook pages, and our school and district web pages.  We encourage you to stay connected and we walk together into a new year. Every child needs a champion to support them, and I look forward to partnering with our families "Empowering our students for life's endless opportunities."

We look forward to welcoming you back!

Important reminders:

Pike-Lincoln Tech students need to come to school on Thursday at the normal 8:10 start time.  After the all-school assembly, they may check out with a parent note until 11:00.  Since Pike-Lincoln does not begin school until the 21st, those students don't need to be at school until 11:00 on Friday and Monday, 8/17 and 8/20.  

School Picture Days:

BGHS:  August 30

BGMS: August 29

Frankford:  August 27
