Greetings, everyone!
Summer session starts on Monday! We have over 4,000 students enrolled for summer. Don’t miss out! If you have students who need to catch up with their peers, complete prerequisites before fall, or graduate early, we can help! Registration is open through Friday, June 21.
See all the details below!

Summer Session Guides
Summer Session classes begin on Monday, June 17. Be sure to have all of our guides handy!
See our Summer Session Guide for Schools if you need help preparing for summer.
Direct students to our Getting Started as an NCVPS Student page before classes begin. Remember, we don’t send usernames and passwords to students. Schools must do that. Students should also have our Start Up Guide and our Student Success Guide.
We also have a Guide for Parents and Mentors. This guide helps parents and others facilitate NCVPS courses at home or anywhere outside of school.
Action Items
District Stakeholder Survey
It’s time for our stakeholder survey! This survey is designed to assess NCVPS customer service, processes, and partnership efforts. If you are district or school personnel, please participate in our NCVPS District Stakeholder Survey.
The results of this survey are one component of the on-going process for improvement in our collaboration with districts across the state. Results provide insightful information to create positive change, improved processes, and optimal customer service. Thank you in advance for taking the time to submit your responses!
Summer Contact Information Needed
Districts and schools that are registering students for summer classes need to complete our NCVPS Summer 2019 ELA Contact Information form.
NCVPS needs the contact information for each school that registers students for Summer 2019 classes. Students registered for summer classes will need to know who the contact is, as well. Students can drop through our 10th day of class, and they need to know who to contact at the school or at the district level so that they can be dropped. Districts may elect to have just one contact for the entire district over the summer.
Presently, you may not have any students enrolled in NCVPS summer courses, but if your school does enroll students in the coming weeks for Summer 2019, we will need this information.
If districts have their school-level ELA contact information in an Excel document, they can copy and paste that into the contact box on the link above.
Printable Guides For Summer School Students
We’ve created new printable guides for parents, students, and mentors. If you have students in summer school, be sure they leave with all four student guides:
We also have an important guide for parents and mentors. Please try to get this guide into the hands of anyone how may be in a position to help the student over the summer. Sometimes just a little facilitation can go a long way in ensuring student success.
Reminders
Registration for 2019-2020
Registration is open next year.
