getting started for schools

Attention Schools: 

Please remember you must give usernames and passwords to your students! NCVPS does not send login details to students. Schools must do that. Be sure your students are logging in to the NCVPS Canvas link and not your district’s or school’s Canvas login link.  Also, if students are unsure how to begin, direct them to our Getting Started as an NCVPS Student page.

Partnering with the North Carolina Virtual Public School

NCVPS partners with districts and schools to give students greater opportunity through online courses developed by North Carolina teachers. We help every type of student, from the student who fell behind to the student who wants to graduate early. We help students who have scheduling problems, are home bound or in a treatment program, or are looking for a challenge.

With over 150 courses in six different programs, NCVPS can provide districts with solutions to increase student retention through enrollment opportunities not available at a face-to-face school. Our goal is to prepare students to be globally competitive in the workforce and postsecondary education.

To find out more about how this works and where to start, check out the details below.

The Role of the School and e-Learning Advisor

The Role of the School

First, review the School & District Partnership Agreement before enrolling students.

The e-Learning Advisor

Now you will need to determine who your e-Learning Advisor (ELA) is for your school. The ELA can be an advisor, principal, assistant principal, lab facilitator, etc. Whoever the ELA is, that is the person who our teachers will contact.

Note: A number of school staff members will likely be involved a student's online enrollment. If the student has an IEP, your school's EC specialist should be involved. Your data manager will likely be the person who schedules and enters grades into PowerSchool. Your testing coordinator will administer EOC/CTE/NCFE exams for students who take those courses online with us.
