In cooperation with Grandview R-II School District, MOREnet has brought excellent technical support, substantial grant monies, and a positive outlook for the future of Grandview.  Through years of cooperative service, Grandview and MOREnet developed sustainable and productive on-line  flipped classroom models that bring success and confidence to the students and staff of the Grandview District.

Moodle is an online Learning Management System that Grandview teachers and employees utilize to store curriculum, deliver lessons, engage students in interactive education games and enhance all classroom activities.  Parents and students are allowed guest access to all courses and organizations in one comprehensive site.  For more information, or to request guest access to courses please contact the Grandview Central office at 636-944-3941.

TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we're building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world's most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long (www.ted.com).

The Khan Academy Mission serves to inspire, instruct and guide our users' learning.
