Is it self-paced or does the virtual school set the pace of progress?

Hi, is this just for 6-12 grades?

I saw a course (e.g. English 1) offered year-long and half-year. Is the half-year course basically the same as year-long but condensed?

Crystal Pullen
31:26
The teacher made exams and projects are a part of the regular course and do not require and special administration.

Does this mean that classes don't start or end at a specific time?
Crystal Pullen
44:13
@Natasha, our courses have specific start and end time for the semester or year, but not for daily activity.
Dawn Ray
45:13
Our HS finishes and submit grades prior to the new year but the class my daughter is taking (Japanese 2) is scheduled to finish up into our 2nd semester already starting up. Will the NCvirtual teacher meet the scheduled HS EOY exam/ or will we have to wait to take the course exam into the new semester? Are NCVirual teachers notified as to student's grade due for their HS?
Crystal Pullen
45:43
@Dawn, yes, the school will communicate these needs to the teacher and they will adapt the course pacing.
Adam Renfro
45:50
@Dawn, if the school requests that, yes, we will do that.
Adam Renfro
46:37
We have a form that schools submit for early course completion. They should be familiar with the process.

Dawn Ray
57:01
Would we use the same access to the Parent portal App we used previous year?
Tracy Bell
57:19
@Roxana Attendance is not taken in the course; however, students should work daily (5 day per week) in the course, as most courses have assignments due daily. The base school may take attendance, if the course is taken from a school lab.

The login and password provided by my son's private school (Caldwell Academy, Gulford County) today does not work on ncvps's canvas system. Did I understand correctly that no one can log in until this coming Friday (the Friday before the first week of school)?
Crystal Pullen
01:12:10
@Kale, it will depend on the course, but each of our courses are created for multiple learning styles and are based on the NC standard course of study.
