NCVPS E-lert Sept 19, 2019

Greetings, everyone!
We have nearly 25,000 students enrolled with us this fall, and we have a lot of built-in support features ready to help them.
If students need help of any kind with their NCVPS classes, they can visit the homepage of their course or our website for assistance. Help is never more than 2-clicks away!
See our Student Help page for details about how students can find assistance through our website, the Virtual Support Center, the Peer Tutoring Center, and their NCVPS teachers. We also have help for advisors, facilitators, parents, and mentors.
Current Enrollment Options
We can help schools with enrollments throughout the semester. Even after our regular enrollment period ended, we have these options available:
Transfer Students – We begin accepting transfer students after our regular enrollment has ended. Transfer students must be enrolled in the class at the face-to-face school and have a grade to transfer in with. Transfers are not for students new to the course. We must also have an available seat in the course to accommodate the transfer request. Open a ticket with our Virtual Support Center to begin the transfer process. Be sure to include the following in your ticket:
  • student’s name
  • PowerSchool ID#
  • school name
  • transfer grade
  • course needed
  • any student details that can help the NCVPS teacher
Transfer options will remain open through midterms each semester.
OCS Enrollments – You can still enroll OCS students into your existing OCS sections. We can’t open new OCS sections for schools, though. The same is true for your NCVPS intervention courses.
Flex Learning – We have Flex Learning options available throughout the semester. Flex is designed for students who need flexible calendar options due to their particular circumstances. Visit our Flex Learning page for details on how to enroll.
Spring Enrollments – Registration is still wide open for Spring 2020!
Funding – If you use all of your allotments and still need to enroll, contact us. You can request access to NCVPS reserve funds after you’ve exhausted your allotments.
Virtual Innovators Conference
Join us at the North Carolina Virtual Innovators Conference! The NCVPS VIC2019 will bring us together to connect, share, and learn about online and digital learning. The conference is October 19, 2019, at Moore Square Middle School, beginning at 8:00 am.

Request for Sections
