Public-Private School Cooperation Can Empower Local Communities

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.
