Launch Virtual Programming

Launch’s member districts benefit from their Launch partnership in a multitude of ways. By working as cooperating school districts with Springfield Public Schools, districts receive access to high-quality curriculum and an expanded traditional virtual course catalog. Partners also receive access to a full suite of Credit Recovery courses and Credit Acquisition courses (which afford flexibility and opportunities for at-risk students).

How to Enroll

Parents & Students
All Launch enrollments must come through Launch liaisons at Launch partner district schools. Parents are not able to enroll students directly. Check out the Launch Member Directory to learn if your student’s current school district/the school district you live in currently works with Launch.

If your student currently attends or lives in a Launch partner district, call your school and talk to the building’s counselor or Launch liaison about Launch enrollment opportunities.

Member Directory

If your student does not currently attend or live in a Launch partner district, contact marketing & engagement manager Savannah Waszczuk at 417-523-0417 or to discuss possibilities.
