NCVPS is continuing to serve Flex Learning enrollments this year. Flex Learning gives schools options for students in special situations who need solutions outside the regular scheduling windows during a school year. This allows NCVPS to become an intervention strategy for schools with difficult student enrollment situations. Flex learning allows students to work at their own pace to complete the course with their NCVPS teacher.
Here are examples of how NCVPS has helped with flexible options:
- In one scenario, a student needed to complete both Spanish 1 and 2 during the Fall semester. The student started Spanish 1 in August and finished coursework mid-semester. Spanish 2 was started mid-semester and completed successfully in December. The student was able to earn both Spanish 1 and 2 full course credits within one semester
- In another scenario, a student needs to have Personal Finance as a yearlong option due to medical reasons which cause the student to miss some school days and not able to work daily.
If a student is enrolled in a section that will finish within one semester, then the cost is the same as a block. If the enrollment is for an entire year then it will be the same as our yearlong cost. With new features within our Learning Management System, we have more options to flex within current sections, or we can discuss options to open new sections.
Do you think you have students that could benefit from a Flex Learning enrollment option?
