February 9: Progress Reports for All Classes
February 23: Progress Reports for All Classes
 See our sidebar to find an overview of NCVPS grade reporting.
Parents and facilitators can now download the CanvasParent app in both the iTunes and  Google Play stores.

Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school’s e-learning advisor (ELA).
The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student’s progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:

  • View assignment descriptions and due dates
  • Set reminders for assignments
  • View assignment grades
  • View course grades
  • Set grade alerts
  • View course announcements
Here are several helpful links:
Parents and facilitators can also use the Parent Portal online. Directions on how to use the portal are here.
OnlineSuccessTips

NCVPS teachers have a lot of great tips to share with online students and the support crews who facilitate their learning. “They know a thing or two because they’ve seen a thing or two.”
Help your students establish a daily routine for their online courses. Effective steps in a successful routine include the following:
Log in Everyday Monday through Friday – Check the NCVPS calendar. If it’s a school day, you have work! Make it a habit every single school day, and you will be successful. A little each day is better than cramming all of your work in at once.
Check Daily Announcements – Each day your NCVPS teacher will post an announcement that is directly related to your learning for that day. Be sure to read it! There’s valuable information there. You should also be receiving these announcements via email. If you’re not, please check your Canvas settings to be sure that your email is registered correctly in your profile.
Check the “to-do” List in Canvas – You should never be surprised with work is due or a test is coming up.
Check Grades for Feedback – We teach in our feedback! We want you to learn the material, not just receive a grade.
Communicate with Your Teacher Regularly – Ask questions. Let the teacher know if you need help.
Let Someone Know When You Have a Problem – Don’t let a small problem turn into a big problem. Contact your teacher right away if you are having a problem in the course. If you can’t log in, contact your ELA or the NCVPS Virtual Support Center. If you need a tutor, we have those, too! Ask your NCVPS teacher about our Peer Tutoring program or explore the link on your course home page.
Create a Schedule and Follow It – If you are working from home, have a specific time each day to work in your NCVPS course. You will have something to do every single school day. Be aware of your assignment due dates. Be sure to sign in to your course each day and complete that work.
Stay Organized – Keep track of our course work! You should save copies of your work on flash drives or on online. Know where everything is. Also, keep track of your NCVPS calendars and pacing guides. Know what’s up next.
Have a Consistent Workspace – You need an organized, clean workspace to do your NCVPS work, whether it’s in your school’s lab or at home. Your workspace should be free from distractions. In front of your Playstation or television might not be the ideal workspace.

NCFETEstingNCFE Testing Update
Please remember that districts and charter schools must test all students enrolled in NCVPS courses that have a North Carolina Final Exam. This includes OCS courses that are taught jointly between the LEA and NCVPS.

Twenty-eight courses have NCFEs:
English 1, 3, 4
American History: Civics, World History, American History 1 and 2
Physical Science, Earth/Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics
Math 2, Math 3, Advanced Functions and Modeling, Pre-Calculus
Please check your rosters to see if you have students enrolled in these courses with NCVPS. You will need to administer the NCFE test to them. You do not need to report the scores back to NCVPS, but you will need it to determine the final grade for students in those courses.
DPI’s Accountability Services will communicate with districts and charters about the testing windows.

RepordcardUpdateNCVPS Report Card Update
Beginning Fall 2016, NCVPS will no longer report two grading period averages for students. Instead, NCVPS will report cumulative progress reports every two weeks. At the end of the semester, we will report a Final Course Work grade.
In the past, our weighted grades for report cards looked like this:
First Grading Period: 37.5%
Second Grading Period: 37.5%
Final Exam/Project: 25%
*Schools administered EOC and CTE Exams and averaged in those scores with our two grading period averages.
Now, our weighted grades will look like this:
Final Course Work Grade: 75%
Final Exam/Project: 25%
*Schools now administer EOC, NCFE, and CTE Exams and average in those scores with our Final Course Work grade.
As always, schools may recalculate grades if the district policy has different weights for the final exams.
NOTE: NCVPS progress report grades are not weighted grades. Therefore, our progress report grades would not be accurate for schools to use when they are generating their weighted Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 or Midterm and End term (or whatever variation a district might use) report card grades. The school’s final averages and NCVPS’s final course work grade will not match each other when districts do this.
A number of districts are only entering NCVPS grades at the end of the term. Districts use a similar method when students take courses at the local community college. These districts are sending home separate NCVPS progress reports when they mail home progress reports, Quarter 1, or Midterm grades.

Tech Updates
ChromebookUpdateChromebook Update
Google Chromebooks are currently supported for NCVPS Courses.
Google Chromebook and Chrome OS are possible options for you to consider to support your learning at NCVPS. While NCVPS learning environments are fully compatible with Google Chromebooks, some third party content within your courses may not yet be updated to meet the requirements set forth within the Chrome Operating System. If you experience an interruption in your learning, please open a help desk ticket at help.ncvps.com and we will make reasonable accommodations to support your learning experience.
Students are able to open a help ticket with our Virtual Support Center when they are logged into Canvas.
When “Page Not Found” appears users should open a Virtual Support tickets by clicking on the ? Help button then clicking on “Enter a NCVPS Help Desk Ticket.”
Password Reset
If you have had your password reset, the new password will not expire unless you have reset it. If you have forgotten what your password was reset to, you can look up the help desk ticket to access the new password or click on “Forgot Password”.
When requesting help regarding a course it always easier for tech support to respond quickly if we have the specific section name, for example:
CourseSec01Sum16
When opening a ticket with the virtual support center, please always include the following:
  • Student’s first & last name
  • PowerSchool ID number (This will help ensure we have the correct student)
  • School name (full name, i.e. Eastern Mills High School, not EMHS)
  • Course name – if the student is already enrolled,  include specific section, i.e. CourseSec01Sum16.
If you need a new student account for a student who is new to PowerSchool (not just transferring schools), include the following:
  • Your full school name (i.e. Eastern Mills High School, not EMHS)
  • The student’s first and last name
  • The student’s PowerSchool ID number
  • The student’s email address
  • The student’s phone number (the contact number this will be in PowerSchool)
  • Does the student have an IEP? Yes/No
  • Does the student have a 504 Plan? Yes/No
Replying to a Support Center Ticket
 
After you submit a ticket to the Virtual Support Center, you will receive a ticket confirmation and resolution via email. To expedite your resolution, please do not reply to the email. The email will have a link in it for your response. Please click on that link (see below).
This will put the ticket right back in the queue of the person who is working on your ticket. If you reply to the email, then that will have to be manually put into the ticket, and that can delay the process by several hours.
In Canvas:
Click on “settings” on your name in the upper right side of your course.
Click on “Add Email Address” under Ways to Contact on the right of screen.
Add your correct email if Canvas is not displaying your correct email.
Click on “Register email.”
Click the star next to your correct email address.

This will put the ticket right back in the queue of the person who is working on your ticket. If you reply to the email, then that will have to be manually put into the ticket, and that can delay the process by several hours.

Current E-lert News

Greetings!

We have extended our drop/add deadline to Wednesday, Feb. 8.  This will allow schools that had a late start to drop students who need to be dropped and add students who need a course.
Schools will be able to drop in our registration system through Feb. 8. After Friday, Feb. 3, the system will indicate it as a “late drop,” but it will be processed as a regular drop, so there will be no penalty for the district or student. After Feb. 8, schools will be able to withdraw students throughout the semester. However, those withdrawals will count in the district’s allotment totals and the student will receive a W (withdrawal) grade from NCVPS.
After Feb. 3, schools will need to request late adds through the virtual support center. If we have an opening in the course, we will try to accommodate that request. Please include the student’s name, PowerSchool ID, school name, and course needed in the help ticket. This process will continue through Feb. 8. After that date, students would need a transfer grade to transfer in with.
In addition, schools will still be able to enroll students into credit recovery courses in our registration system through April 7 and into OCS courses throughout the semester.

SpringUpdatesSpring 2017 Updates

Be sure students are logging it at this link:  https://ncvps.instructure.com/login/canvas/
Are your students having difficulty logging in? Here are the solutions:
  • Be sure that students have their correct username and password. Schools must issue their usernames and passwords. NCVPS does not issue.
  • NCVPS uses Canvas for its learning management system. Many schools and districts also use Canvas. NCVPS has its own Canvas login web address. Be sure you are logging in to your NCVPS courses at this link: https://ncvps.instructure.com/login/canvas/ 
  • Be sure that the student is enrolled and not waitlisted.
  • If a student was just registered today, it will take 24 hours to get access.
  • If a student had an NCVPS class before in Canvas, and they changed their passwords, then that is the password that they will need to use.
  • If the student still cannot log in, open a ticket with our Virtual Support Center at this link. Be sure to include the student’s name, PowerSchool ID number, school, and course that he or she is trying to log in to.
  • If students have forgotten their passwords, they can use the “Forgot Password” feature on the login page. This will work if you have their correct email address identified in the registration system.
Follow this link to our registration system.
If you need access, contact our Virtual Support Center here. Please remember that there is only one login per school.  If your school already has access, you will need to share the login username and password.
If you are new to the NCVPS registration system or need a refresher, the guide at this link will help.
Don’t panic if your students land the waitlist when you register them. Our instructional directors look at the waitlists daily to determine if a new section needs to be opened or if a current section needs to be expanded.
We do have a few courses operating at capacity, however.  See the list of courses at capacity here.  If a student is waitlisted in a course that is at capacity, the only way the student will move off the waitlists is if an already enrolled student drops the course.
We have made edits in our NCVPS IEP/504 Guidelines for NCVPS teachers and school ELAs to reflect the new password protection policies.
The edits have been changed to reflect that passwords for password protected documents can no longer be shared via email. When NCVPS teachers send a password protected summary of the student IEP/504 accommodations and modifications that were discussed with the ELA over the phone, the NCVPS teacher will now give the ELA the password for this doc over the phone during this initial conversation.  These changes are highlighted in yellow on the document.
Before a school registers students, the school and OCS F2F (face-to-face) teacher should be willing to teach the OCS courses in the online learning environment and be committed to the co-teaching partnership with the NCVPS online Content Teacher.
School registrations will not be official until schools provide NCVPS with the names of their classroom OCS teachers who will partner with the NCVPS teacher. School ELAs will be asked to provide the name of the OCS classroom teacher for each course before each semester begins. They will submit this information to the NCVPS OCS Registration Team via a F2F Teacher Designation Form (google doc).  School ELAs will be contacted by email in order to provide this information.
Please be sure your contact information in the registration system is current. We will send the designation form to the ELA contact information in the registration system.
For complete details on the OCS registration process, see our OCS page at this link.
This template is a guide to give to students before classes begin. It has a place for all the essential details to help students get started with their NCVPS courses.
You will need to fill in some of the details or you can have students come to you and complete the details themselves. You can print the template for students, or you can copy and paste it into an email that you send to students.

Parents and facilitators can now download the CanvasParent app in both the iTunes and  Google Play stores.

Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school’s e-learning advisor (ELA).
The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student’s progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:

  • View assignment descriptions and due dates
  • Set reminders for assignments
  • View assignment grades
  • View course grades
  • Set grade alerts
  • View course announcements
Here are several helpful links:
Parents and facilitators can also use the Parent Portal online. Directions on how to use the portal are here.
OnlineSuccessTips

NCVPS teachers have a lot of great tips to share with online students and the support crews who facilitate their learning. “They know a thing or two because they’ve seen a thing or two.”
Announcements are important! Each day, your teacher will be posting announcements that instruct, inform, and celebrate. Create a routine where your first step is to visit the announcements daily. You should also be receiving these via email and/or text daily. These messages contain important information about the course, tips for completing assignments, celebrations of a job well done, and opportunities for extra credit. The importance of reading the announcements daily cannot be overstated.

NCFETEstingNCFE Testing Update
Please remember that districts and charter schools must test all students enrolled in NCVPS courses that have a North Carolina Final Exam. This includes OCS courses that are taught jointly between the LEA and NCVPS.

Twenty-eight courses have NCFEs:
English 1, 3, 4
American History: Civics, World History, American History 1 and 2
Physical Science, Earth/Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics
Math 2, Math 3, Advanced Functions and Modeling, Pre-Calculus
Please check your rosters to see if you have students enrolled in these courses with NCVPS. You will need to administer the NCFE test to them. You do not need to report the scores back to NCVPS, but you will need it to determine the final grade for students in those courses.
DPI’s Accountability Services will communicate with districts and charters about the testing windows.

RepordcardUpdateNCVPS Report Card Update
Beginning Fall 2016, NCVPS will no longer report two grading period averages for students. Instead, NCVPS will report cumulative progress reports every two weeks. At the end of the semester, we will report a Final Course Work grade.
In the past, our weighted grades for report cards looked like this:
First Grading Period: 37.5%
Second Grading Period: 37.5%
Final Exam/Project: 25%
*Schools administered EOC and CTE Exams and averaged in those scores with our two grading period averages.
Now, our weighted grades will look like this:
Final Course Work Grade: 75%
Final Exam/Project: 25%
*Schools now administer EOC, NCFE, and CTE Exams and average in those scores with our Final Course Work grade.
As always, schools may recalculate grades if the district policy has different weights for the final exams.
NOTE: NCVPS progress report grades are not weighted grades. Therefore, our progress report grades would not be accurate for schools to use when they are generating their weighted Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 or Midterm and End term (or whatever variation a district might use) report card grades. The school’s final averages and NCVPS’s final course work grade will not match each other when districts do this.
A number of districts are only entering NCVPS grades at the end of the term. Districts use a similar method when students take courses at the local community college. These districts are sending home separate NCVPS progress reports when they mail home progress reports, Quarter 1, or Midterm grades.

Tech Updates
ChromebookUpdateChromebook Update
Google Chromebooks are currently supported for NCVPS Courses.
Google Chromebook and Chrome OS are possible options for you to consider to support your learning at NCVPS. While NCVPS learning environments are fully compatible with Google Chromebooks, some third party content within your courses may not yet be updated to meet the requirements set forth within the Chrome Operating System. If you experience an interruption in your learning, please open a help desk ticket at help.ncvps.com and we will make reasonable accommodations to support your learning experience.
Students are able to open a help ticket with our Virtual Support Center when they are logged into Canvas.
When “Page Not Found” appears users should open a Virtual Support tickets by clicking on the ? Help button then clicking on “Enter a NCVPS Help Desk Ticket.”
Password Reset
If you have had your password reset, the new password will not expire unless you have reset it. If you have forgotten what your password was reset to, you can look up the help desk ticket to access the new password or click on “Forgot Password”.
When requesting help regarding a course it always easier for tech support to respond quickly if we have the specific section name, for example:
CourseSec01Sum16
When opening a ticket with the virtual support center, please always include the following:
  • Student’s first & last name
  • PowerSchool ID number (This will help ensure we have the correct student)
  • School name (full name, i.e. Eastern Mills High School, not EMHS)
  • Course name – if the student is already enrolled,  include specific section, i.e. CourseSec01Sum16.
If you need a new student account for a student who is new to PowerSchool (not just transferring schools), include the following:
  • Your full school name (i.e. Eastern Mills High School, not EMHS)
  • The student’s first and last name
  • The student’s PowerSchool ID number
  • The student’s email address
  • The student’s phone number (the contact number this will be in PowerSchool)
  • Does the student have an IEP? Yes/No
  • Does the student have a 504 Plan? Yes/No

Registration is still open for spring courses. We understand that a number of districts aren’t starting their spring courses until next week. If you can, please go ahead and issue login information to students. If they are able to log in before your official spring start, that’s great! Otherwise, our teachers are aware of the late start that many districts are operating on.
We posted our Day-3 Student Status report in the registration system today. This report shows all the students who have not logged in yet. If your students haven’t begun second semester, no problem! If your students should have already started and they’ve been marked as not logging in yet, please contact those students.
We will continue to register until Feb. 3 for traditional calendar courses, which is our tenth day of class. We will have a number of enrollment options available after our tenth day to include credit recovery, OCS. mastery, health & PE, and transfers.

In the past, our weighted grades for report cards looked like this:
First Grading Period: 37.5%
Second Grading Period: 37.5%
Final Exam/Project: 25%
*Schools administered EOC and CTE Exams and averaged in those scores with our two grading period averages.
Now, our weighted grades will look like this:
Final Course Work Grade: 75%
Final Exam/Project: 25%
*Schools now administer EOC, NCFE, and CTE Exams and average in those scores with our Final Course Work grade.
As always, schools may recalculate grades if the district policy has different weights for the final exams.
NOTE: NCVPS progress report grades are not weighted grades. Therefore, our progress report grades would not be accurate for schools to use when they are generating their weighted Quarter 1 and Quarter 2 or Midterm and End term (or whatever variation a district might use) report card grades. The school’s final averages and NCVPS’s final course work grade will not match each other when districts do this.
A number of districts are only entering NCVPS grades at the end of the term. Districts use a similar method when students take courses at the local community college. These districts are sending home separate NCVPS progress reports when they mail home progress reports, Quarter 1, or Midterm grades.

Tech Updates
ChromebookUpdateChromebook Update
Google Chromebooks are currently supported for NCVPS Courses.
Google Chromebook and Chrome OS are possible options for you to consider to support your learning at NCVPS. While NCVPS learning environments are fully compatible with Google Chromebooks, some third party content within your courses may not yet be updated to meet the requirements set forth within the Chrome Operating System. If you experience an interruption in your learning, please open a help desk ticket at help.ncvps.com and we will make reasonable accommodations to support your learning experience.
Students are able to open a help ticket with our Virtual Support Center when they are logged into Canvas.
When “Page Not Found” appears users should open a Virtual Support tickets by clicking on the ? Help button then clicking on “Enter a NCVPS Help Desk Ticket.”
Password Reset
If you have had your password reset, the new password will not expire unless you have reset it. If you have forgotten what your password was reset to, you can look up the help desk ticket to access the new password or click on “Forgot Password”.
When requesting help regarding a course it always easier for tech support to respond quickly if we have the specific section name, for example:
CourseSec01Sum16
When opening a ticket with the virtual support center, please always include the following:
  • Student’s first & last name
  • PowerSchool ID number (This will help ensure we have the correct student)
  • School name (full name, i.e. Eastern Mills High School, not EMHS)
  • Course name – if the student is already enrolled,  include specific section, i.e. CourseSec01Sum16.
If you need a new student account for a student who is new to PowerSchool (not just transferring schools), include the following:
  • Your full school name (i.e. Eastern Mills High School, not EMHS)
  • The student’s first and last name
  • The student’s PowerSchool ID number
  • The student’s email address
  • The student’s phone number (the contact number this will be in PowerSchool)
  • Does the student have an IEP? Yes/No
  • Does the student have a 504 Plan? Yes/No
Replying to a Support Center Ticket
 
After you submit a ticket to the Virtual Support Center, you will receive a ticket confirmation and resolution via email. To expedite your resolution, please do not reply to the email. The email will have a link in it for your response. Please click on that link (see below).
This will put the ticket right back in the queue of the person who is working on your ticket. If you reply to the email, then that will have to be manually put into the ticket, and that can delay the process by several hours.
In Canvas:
Click on “settings” on your name in the upper right side of your course.
Click on “Add Email Address” under Ways to Contact on the right of screen.
Add your correct email if Canvas is not displaying your correct email.
Click on “Register email.”
Click the star next to your correct email address.

TOYUdateNCVPS Teacher of Year Finalists Announced

We would like to congratulate the following NCVPS teachers who have been named the Top 5 candidates in the NCVPS 2016-2017 Teacher of the Year selection process. We know that many schools have developed a great relationship with many of our teachers, and that you would want to see this update.
Here are the five finalists:
Joy Crosby – OCS Algebra
Kimberly Rushton – English IV Honors
Teryn Odom – Spanish II
Shara Packman – Latin I
Laurie Sloan – AP Art History
These teachers will move to Phase 2 and out of this group will come this year’s winner.
We are very proud of the work all of our teachers are doing and wish these candidates the very best as they move forward.
Best wishes to everyone for a successful new year.
Teacher of the Year Process
Our Teacher of the Year selection team has been busy calculating scores from Phase 1 submissions for this year’s nominees.
To remove bias and help maintain the integrity of the selection process, the first phase includes “blind scoring,” in which selection team members were provided with the responses only and individual teacher names were removed from the submissions.
Each year, our TOY candidate pool becomes more and more competitive, and we believe this is because NCVPS has a phenomenal group of teachers who go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure students are successful!

OCSRegistrationSpring 2017 OCS Registration

Before a school registers students, the school and OCS F2F (face-to-face) teacher should be willing to teach the OCS courses in the online learning environment and be committed to the co-teaching partnership with the NCVPS online Content Teacher.
School registrations will not be official until schools provide NCVPS with the names of their classroom OCS teachers who will partner with the NCVPS teacher. School ELAs will be asked to provide the name of the OCS classroom teacher for each course before each semester begins. They will submit this information to the NCVPS OCS Registration Team via a F2F Teacher Designation Form (google doc).  School ELAs will be contacted by email in order to provide this information.
Please be sure your contact information in the registration system is current. We will send the designation form to the ELA contact information in the registration system.
For complete details on the OCS registration process, see our OCS page at this link.

CourseExtensionsCourse Extensions

We will begin accepting requests for fall extensions January 6th for traditional block courses.

If large portions of the course are missing, an extension won’t help the student.  The student will need to be re-enrolled for spring courses.

Please submit an extension request through the Virtual Support Center.

SpringUpdatesSpring 2017 Updates

Registration is still open for spring courses. We will continue to register until Feb. 3 for traditional calendar courses, which is our tenth day of class.
Follow this link to our registration system.
If you need access, contact our Virtual Support Center here. Please remember that there is only one login per school.  If your school already has access, you will need to share the login username and password.
If you are new to the NCVPS registration system or need a refresher, the guide at this link will help.
Don’t panic if your students land the waitlist when you register them. Our instructional directors look at the waitlists daily to determine if a new section needs to be opened or if a current section needs to be expanded.
We do have a few courses operating at capacity, however.  See the list of courses at capacity here.  If a student is waitlisted in a course that is at capacity, the only way the student will move off the waitlists is if an already enrolled student drops the course.
This template is a guide to give to students before classes begin. It has a place for all the essential details to help students get started with their NCVPS courses.
You will need to fill in some of the details or you can have students come to you and complete the details themselves. You can print the template for students, or you can copy and paste it into an email that you send to students.
Here’s the link to the template . Feel free to add your own details!

Parents and facilitators can now download the CanvasParent app in both the iTunes and  Google Play stores.

Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school’s e-learning advisor (ELA).
The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student’s progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:

  • View assignment descriptions and due dates
  • Set reminders for assignments
  • View assignment grades
  • View course grades
  • Set grade alerts
  • View course announcements
Here are several helpful links:
Parents and facilitators can also use the Parent Portal online. Directions on how to use the portal are here.
OnlineSuccessTips

NCVPS teachers have a lot of great tips to share with online students and the support crews who facilitate their learning. “They know a thing or two because they’ve seen a thing or two.”
NCVPS has a nationally recognized peer tutoring program. Our student tutors a have strong working knowledge of the courses in which they tutor and a recommendation from an NCVPS teacher.
Peer Tutors can help your students better understand their course structure and course content. They are only an appointment away in our Upswing! platform, which can be accessed from any course. Have students look for the Peer Tutoring button in their courses:
Once students make contact with a Peer Tutor, they may want to schedule a regular tutoring time so that they can stay on top of their course. Our Peer Tutors are available for Quick Questions and one-on-one sessions.

NCFETEstingNCFE Testing Update
Please remember that districts and charter schools must test all students enrolled in NCVPS courses that have a North Carolina Final Exam. This includes OCS courses that are taught jointly between the LEA and NCVPS.

Twenty-eight courses have NCFEs:
English 1, 3, 4
American History: Civics, World History, American History 1 and 2
Physical Science, Earth/Environmental Science, Chemistry, Physics
Math 2, Math 3, Advanced Functions and Modeling, Pre-Calculus
Please check your rosters to see if you have students enrolled in these courses with NCVPS. You will need to administer the NCFE test to them. You do not need to report the scores back to NCVPS, but you will need it to determine the final grade for students in those courses.
DPI’s Accountability Services will communicate with districts and charters about the testing windows.
