  • Core site license agreements do not require progress reporting from vendors, as long as a contract is in place between the LEA and the courseware provider.
  • The LEA is responsible for reporting its own student data.

  • MOCAP courseware providers only submit data to verify enrollments.

  • Core site license agreements do not fall under the MOCAP rules for MOCAP reporting, price caps, and appeals in Section 161.670, RSMo.
