Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP)
Osborn High School makes every attempt to meet the curricular needs of all of its students by
offering a wide range of course offerings and opportunities, both face-to-face and online. A list
of the current OHS face-to-face course offerings can be found in the OHS Course Description
and Career Planning Guide.
In cases where student need is not being met by these course offerings, the recently passed
Senate Bill 603 (referred to as "MOCAP") attempts to address this gap. MOCAP was passed
with the intent of expanding the range of courses and opportunities offered to students,
offering courses for students when there are no qualified teachers to teach the course, and
allowing students to take a course not offered at the local school district
In brief, MO Senate Bill 603 states that:
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 (MOCAP). Enrollment must be approved by Osborn High School. 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.
If you feel that your or your child might benefit from this program, enrollment takes place the
same time enrollment takes place for other OHS courses. Students should enroll in MOCAP
courses the same way they enroll for regular OHS courses. Please talk with the principal or
counselor to request a MOCAP course through OHS.
