AFC Applauds the Passage of the Course Access Program by Large, Bipartisan Majority in Missouri House
Yesterday, the Missouri House passed a bill that will expand the opportunity for high school students to enroll in classes at another school or virtually. The bill received wide bipartisan support with a vote margin of 124-31.
Previously, the program was limited to virtual learning programs for students who were hospitalized or homebound due to medical challenges. This new legislation allows high schoolers to enroll in two classes—virtually or in person—at another school or education provider. The State of Missouri will approve of the courses and Governor Eric Greitens pledged in his State of the State address to expand and fully fund the program.
