I'm not sure that you'll be able to do local failover with CAS authentication, since CAS authentication circumvents the login screen entirely.

What you can do is set up different authentication methods for different courses.  For the courses that need local authentication, you can add the following to course.conf:

$authen{user_module} = {
"*" => "WeBWorK::Authen::Basic_TheLastOption",

I don't see a way to use both types of authentication in the same course that doesn't involve making major modifications to the WeBWorK CAS code.
