The MCC’s December Good News will discuss how public and private schools, including Catholic schools, can work together to better their communities. There are a lot of areas where the schools can cooperate, some of which are authorized in state law. For example, students can dually enroll in both a public and private school. (See Section 167.031 RSMo). Public school districts can set up virtual schools and non-public schools are eligible to participate. (See Section 162.1250 RSMo). Both dual enrollment and virtual schools are ways to enhance the curriculum offerings that students can take advantage of.
