NCVirtual posts progress report grades every two weeks (weekly during the summer) in the NCVPS registration system. What should your action steps be with our progress reports? We’re glad you asked!
Here are a few steps you can take.
Access the Report – Progress reports are posted in the NCVPS registration system. See our Guide for Accessing Grade Reports for details. For the complete details on our grading guidelines, visit our Grades and Testing Quick Reference Guide.
Schools have access to our posted progress reports. Parents, facilitators, and mentors can use the Canvas App for Parents to monitor student progress.
Schools should check the following two items on every progress report:
- Check Student Progress – If you have any underperforming students, we have several supports ready for you. Students have time to improve their grades, but they should start immediately. Please review the following supports.
- Check Teacher Comments – Our teachers will request data that they need from the school, like parent contact information and IEP/504 modifications. They may need the school to contact students if they have stopped logging into the course and do not respond to teacher communications.
We have several levels of support for students.
Student Help Page – If students are having any problems at all and aren’t sure where to find help, they should visit our Student Help page. They are never more than two clicks away from help!
Peer Tutoring Center – Do not let this resource go unutilized for any student who needs help. There is a link to the Peer Tutoring Center in every course.
Teacher Communications – Students do not always advocate for themselves very well. Go ahead and reach out to the NCVirtual teacher to see if adjustments can be made for struggling students. Our teachers are eager to help.
Intervention Strategies – NCVirtual has a list of intervention strategies for districts and schools to follow. These are good for any low-performing, under-performing, or at-risk students. Visit our Intervention Strategies page for details.
Guide for Parents and Mentors – Most students have someone who wants to help them. It might be a parent, other relative, friend, minister, coach, or mentor, but they don’t know how to help. Try to get our Guide for Parents and Mentors into their hands. It might be the exact kind of help your student needs.
Virtual Support Center – If you have a complicated support question or problem and don’t know where to start, open Virtual Support Center ticket. We will escalate your ticket to the right person. Be sure to include the student’s name, PowerSchool ID number, and your school name. If your ticket is about a specific course, please include the course name and teacher name.
