Semester Success Guide
We have several processes that schools should follow throughout the semester to help students have greater success in NCVPS courses. Check out these four support features:
1. Ensure Students Have a Successful Start
Direct students to our Getting Started as an NCVPS Student web page. This page guides students step-by-step through the initial days of their course. They will find valuable resources for reading, viewing, and printing on the Getting Started page.
2. Printable Guides and Checklists
Check out our printable guides and other online resources for school ELAs, students, parents, and mentors.
See our Printable NCVPS Guides for all the details.
3. Check Grade Reports
Check the registration system for progress reports. We post progress reports every two weeks in the registration system. If you have questions about a student’s performance between grade postings, email the student’s teacher directly for an update. We will continue to post our grades into the registration system until we are integrated with PowerSchool.
4. NCVPS Help
Districts, schools, and students have several places to seek help. Determine which of the following resource you need:
NCVPS Virtual Support Center – Get all your questions answered and problems solved here. Students, e-learning advisors (ELAs), school and district staff personnel, and parents can all use the Support Center. If you are opening a ticket for student help, 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.
5. Interventions for Low-Performing Students
If you have students who are low-performing, under-performing, or at-risk for any reason, NCVPS has a number of intervention strategies for districts and school to follow. Visit our Intervention Strategies page for details.
6. Be Aware of Current Enrollment Options
We can help schools with enrollments throughout the semester. Even after our regular enrollment period ends, we have these options available:
Transfer Students – We can accept transfer students after regular enrollment has ended. Transfer students must be enrolled in the class at the face-to-face school, have seat time with an instructor, and have a passing grade to transfer in with. We must also have an available seat in the course to accommodate the transfer. Contact the Virtual Support Center to transfer students. Be sure to include the following in your ticket:
- student’s name
- PowerSchool ID#
- school name
- transfer grade
- course needed
- any student details that can help the NCVPS teacher
Transfer options will remain open through midterms each semester.
OCS Enrollments – We can still enroll OCS students into existing sections. We can’t open new OCS sections for schools, though.
Flex Learning – We have Flex Learning options available throughout the semester. Contact our Virtual Support Center to enroll students into Flex Learning courses. Be sure to include the student’s name PowerSchool ID#, school name, and course needed. You can include any details that will help us better support the student.
