Additional Mississippi Online Course Approval review offered; Apply by Feb. 28

The Mississippi Department of Education is opening an additional Mississippi Online Course Approval (MOCA) review in February 2023. The deadline for applications for online courses is Feb. 28. This MOCA review will be conducted on an abbreviated timeline in order to make the courses available for the 2023-2024 school year.

For courses to be approved for use as online classes, local school districts must apply to the Mississippi Department of Education (MDE) for approval to ensure the vendor/provider’s content, curriculum, and assessments are aligned to Mississippi’s course standards and the vendor/provider’s teachers are certified Mississippi teachers.  The Fall MOCA Application will be used for this additional review and can be accessed from MDE’s Mississippi Online Course Approval (MOCA) website.
