About Virtual Learning in Hazelwood School District
Beginning in January 2019, any student in kindergarten through 12th grade enrolled in the Hazelwood School District who was also enrolled as a full-time student the previous semester can opt to take a course virtually through the District-approved provider, Launch, or through the Missouri Course Access Program (MOCAP) organized through Missouri’s Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE).
