Parents can now download the Canvas Parent app in both the iTunes and Google Play stores. Parents will need student login information to set up their parent accounts.

Yes. NCVPS sends student grades directly to the student's local school. The local school awards credit and provides the transcript. This is done to maintain the security of a student's private information. Contact the e-learning advisor or guidance counselor at the local school for additional grade details.
Please contact the advisor at your son/daughter's school and have them open an online ticket. Due to state and federal regulations, we have to correspond with officials at the local school with grade issues or personal issues. As soon as we receive the ticket from the school, we will try our best to resolve the issue.
NCVPS registration opens in March for all of the next academic year. Specific dates can be found by visiting the calendar link on the NCVPS website: Calendars .

Yes, our courses do meet NCAA standards. You can see the approved list of NCVPS courses on the NCAA website and searching STATE: North Carolina, CITY: Raleigh; SCHOOLS: North Carolina Virtual Pub Sch. If you are a school and need more information on how to document the course on a student's transcript, the following Quick Reference Guide (QRG) shows the NCAA approval process.
NCVPS does not provide transcripts because the school who enrolled the student in the online course is considered the North Carolina "school of record" and awards the credit for the student. If they are requesting the transcript, please go back to the North Carolina school who enrolled the student and ask them to provide a transcript indicating the student took the online course with NCVPS. The school has been provided information on how to record this information so that the NCAA will accept this information without asking for further information from the student. The North Carolina school must make sure they designate that the online course is from NCVPS for example - Math I and not just ONLINE Math I.
