German Summer Update
Students enrolled in our German courses with OSU need to have proctors for some of the testing assignments. Parents can serve in this role if students are taking courses at home. If students are taking the courses at their school, then the school needs to have a staff member serve as a proctor. Please contact OSU at 800-423-6493 or german.online@okstate.edu for more details.
Math 1 Co-Teaching Webinar
We appreciate your time and interest. We have included some information, resources, and links below to help clarify questions and to provide items that you can readily share with your teams.


If you have additional questions, then please reach out to Catrina Parker at c atrina.parker@ncpublicschools.gov . We look forward to partnering with you!

Summer Program Details 

Summer school with NCVPS is a fast-paced program. An entire 18-week course is taught in just 8 weeks. Students will spend 3-5 hours each day, Monday through Friday, working on their courses, and just like at a traditional school, there is often work over the weekend, too.

See our Summer School Guide for complete program details.

Please remember that there is only one login per school. If your school already has access, you will need to share the login username and password. If you are new to the NCVPS registration system or need a refresher,  Quick Registration Guide  or our   Registration System User's Guide .

Accessibility Statement
The North Carolina Virtual Public School is continually striving to improve our courses for all students, ensuring courses are accessible to everyone.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns regarding the accessibility of a course please do not hesitate to reach out to the NCVPS teacher, or to the NCVPS Director of Exceptional Children Services, Sherry Bell. 

If you are aware that a student has course accessibility needs prior to the start of the semester, it would be very beneficial to discuss with Sherry Bell so that our team can ensure that the student has the access needed to the course content. Examples of accessibility options may include captioning for videos, or transcripts needed for audio.
