Eagle FLEX & MoVIP

Joplin High School Alternative Diploma/Eagle Flex

As a result of legislation signed into law during the summer of 2009, the state of Missouri now provides school districts with the opportunity to create alternative programming options for students in their junior and/or senior year of high school. Joplin High School offers students who enroll in the EAGLE FLEX Alternative Diploma Program an opportunity to earn a high school diploma if certain requirements are met by students. Twenty-four units of credit are required for completion of the program.

Students participating in the program will be considered full-time students of the school district.

Students enrolled in the EAGLE FLEX Program will:

  • Be offered a non-traditional educational path towards earning a high school diploma.

  • Be required to meet a 95% attendance rate.

  • Have the skills necessary to pursue job opportunities through career awareness activities and job training activities.

  • Successfully complete courses in order to meet minimum state diploma requirements by the end of the student’s senior year, and acquire 24 units of credit to earn a diploma.

Credits earned by students during their 9th and 10th grade years will be merged with credits earned during the 11th and 12th grade years of the EAGLE FLEX program. Students will be able to earn core/career education credits in a competency-based system.

In addition, each year the students will be able to earn up to five credits of work experience based on their individual personal plan of study. Students can earn more credits per year than traditional schooling, depending on his or her ability to work in a computer-aided and competency-based system.

Students are referred to the program through their counselor and/or grade level principal.
