Why NC Math 1?

The NC Math 1 course is a barrier to graduation and post-secondary school success for some students. One premise of a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) is to identify barriers students have to accessing content and being on track to graduation. Since not all students learn in the same way, we must provide intentional learning options so that all learners have the opportunity to be successful. NCVPS offers alternative methods to present and access content to students statewide.

NC Math 1 Intervention is designed for students who have not experienced success in their past mathematics courses. Struggling students need intensive support. This program provides increased access and instructional support via blended online learning.

The NC Virtual Public Schools, Curriculum and Instruction, Integrated Academic and Behavior Systems and Exceptional Children Divisions are collaborating to design and develop a continuum of Math I learning opportunities within an MTSS framework to assure all students have the opportunity to meet graduation requirements for math.

Fall 2016: Initial implementation of Foundations of NC Math 1 in Bladen and Carteret.

2016-2017 School Year: Data and feedback acquired via course results and teacher and student surveys and focus groups.

Ongoing: Feedback helps guide course revisions and reflection of practices.

Spring 2017: Initial implementation of NC Math 1 course.

2017-2018 School Year: Statewide Implementation.

General Information

The NCVPS NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program is a collaborative effort between the NCVPS teacher and the face-to-face (f2f) math teacher to teach two courses (Course 1: Foundations of NC Math 1 and Course 2: NC Math 1 over a one-year span. This is a true partnership in teaching!

The graphics above provide details for the structure of the NCVPS NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program, as well as examples of types of students the program is designed for.

The information below will provide details regarding registration and the co-teaching partnership.

Registration Guidance for the NCVPS NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program

NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program Registration Guidelines will be updated later in Spring 2017 once NCVPS registration opens.

Calendar Time

The NCVPS Registration System will allow schools to register students within ONE academic calendar timeframe:

Fall – Foundations of NC Math 1, 1 math elective credit block course, Fall registrations only

Spring – NC Math 1 (denoted as NC Math 1 Co-Teaching in the NCVPS Registration System), 1 NC Math 1 credit block course, spring registrations only (open to fall Foundations of NC Math 1 enrollees only)

We are not offering these two courses, Foundations of NC Math 1 and NC Math 1 (denoted as NC Math 1 Co-Teaching in the NCVPS Registration System), as separate, stand alone courses. Schools need to commit students to both courses.

Partner Classroom Face-to-Face (F2F) Math Teachers

The NCVPS NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program is a collaborative effort between the NCVPS teacher and the f2f math teacher to teach two courses (Course 1: Foundations of NC Math 1 and Course 2: NC Math 1) over a one-year span.

Schools interested in enrolling in the NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program for Fall 2017, can begin to determine which math certified classroom f2f teacher will partner with the NCVPS math certified online teacher to provide instruction for students.

Each school stakeholder, including the classroom f2f math teacher and the school administrators, should have an understanding of how the NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program works so that classroom f2f teachers are prepared and the best scheduling decisions are made.

The Classroom Teacher

Before a school registers students, the school and math certified f2f classroom teacher must be willing to teach the two math courses in the online learning environment and be committed to the co-teaching partnership with the NCVPS math certified online teacher.

The NCVPS Math 1 Intervention partnership requires a true co-teaching experience where the school’s classroom f2f teacher is driving the instructional decisions while working daily with the NCVPS teacher. The NCVPS teacher will help the classroom f2f teacher individualize and differentiate the instruction for each student, but the NCVPS teacher does not deliver the instruction real time to the students. The classroom f2f teacher will be responsible for delivering the instruction to the students and will have planned instructional lessons and daily activities using the online content, resources, and the NCVPS teacher to determine the best way to teach the course content to students.

This co-teaching experience is the most critical piece for schools to understand. The NCVPS teacher will not be providing daily direct instruction; this responsibility rests with the math certified f2f classroom teacher. The online content provides archived teaching sessions that can be used, but the daily instructional decisions are driven by the f2f classroom math teacher who plans daily, through an asynchronous document, with the partner NCVPS teacher. This concept is explained further on this webpage through the NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Classroom Teacher Training.

By registering students into the NCVPS Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program, schools and their f2f teachers are agreeing to teach the courses via a blend of classroom and online instruction, activities, and content.

Contact Names

NCVPS will contact the school eLAs by email to collect the names of their math f2f classroom teachers. NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching Program registrations will not be official until schools submit the names of their f2f classroom math teachers who will partner with the NCVPS teacher.

Co-Teacher Training

All NC Math 1 Intervention Co-Teaching program f2f math classroom teachers at the school will need to go through a two-hour online training prior to the start of the semester. This is a training for all of our partner teachers. Teachers will be able to decide when they want to complete the training, but all f2f classroom math teachers will need to complete this training prior to the start of the semester partnering with NCVPS in the NC Math I Intervention Co-Teaching Program. The f2f classroom math teachers will only have to do this training one time. A survey will need to be completed by the f2f classroom math teachers as part of completing the training.

Canvas Orientation

While you are waiting for your registration to be processed by NCVPS have your students to go through the NCVPS Canvas Orientation if they are new to NCVPS. This can be one to two hours in length and you can use this to fill the classroom time if necessary while you wait for us to process your registration. It is important to note that the registration process can take from 24 to 72+ hours even after all of the above steps are completed.
