Attention Schools

Visit our 2020-2021 Academic Year page for the latest registration details.

Please remember schools must give usernames and passwords to students! NCVirtual does not send login details to students. Be sure your students are logging in to the NCVirtual 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 NCVirtual Student page.

Partnering with NCVirtual

NCVirtual partners with districts and schools to give students greater opportunities 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 homebound or in a treatment program, or are looking for a challenge.

With over 150 courses in six different programs, NCVirtual 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

First, review the School & District Responsibilities 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 with 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.

NCVirtual Registration

Registration Access

You will need access to our registration system to enroll students. If you do not have access, open a ticket with our Virtual Support Center. In your ticket, state that you need an account created for a new school. Include the following information:

• School Name
• District Name (or just Charter, if you’re a Charter school)
• ELA’s Name
• ELA’s contact email and phone

Note: When your new school account is created, you will not have any students associated with your account until we do our next PowerSchool sync. In the same ticket, you can attach a spreadsheet with the names of students you want to register. Include the following for each student you want to register.

• Student Name
• School Name
• PowerSchool ID Number
• Student Email
• Parent Contact Phone Number 

Note: Each school can only have one username and password login for our registration system.

General Tips for Students And Schools

Our student guides will really help! Be sure students have a copy. 

Students will get their login details from your school. You can find each student’s username and password in an Enrollment Report.

Students will not be able to log in until the first day of class.

Be sure students log in to the NCVirtual Canvas login site. Your district or school might have it’s own Canvas login site.

If you enroll a student after the first day of class, it will take about 24 hours before they get access.

Once students log in, they should message their teachers the first day of class. Contact information is on the homepage of their courses.

Students should log in each day and follow their pacing guide.

If students ever have a problem, they should seek help! We offer help in a lot of ways!

We post progress reports in our registration system every two weeks. You can track daily progress with the Canvas App.

Keep track of how your students are progressing. Small interventions can really help!
