NCVPS (North Carolina Virtual Public Schools)
Swansboro Middle School,
North Carolina Virtual Public Schools Guidelines
Swansboro Middle School is proud to offer expanded learning
opportunities through North Carolina Virtual Public Schools
(NCVPS). NCVPS is an online learning environment that allows
our students to complete advanced level classes. Some of the
courses allow students to earn high school credit while they are
still in middle school. Courses that are designated as middle
school courses do not earn credit, but they are advanced learning
opportunities that will provide enrichment for high-achieving
students. All NCVPS courses are taught online by North Carolina
certified teachers. Students are expected to perform at a superior
level in all of these courses.
Assignments are completed via the Internet during
one of the encore periods each day. In order to satisfy
course requirements, students will need to dedicate additional time
to NCVPS at home. An online instructor designs the
syllabus, delivers instruction, creates assignments and deadlines,
and assigns grades. Mrs. Sweeting is the on-site facilitator
who is present in the NCVPS classroom on a daily basis. The
role of the on-site facilitator is to guide students in the
navigation of the course, troubleshoot technical problems, and act
as a liaison between school, home, and the online learning
The process begins with teacher referral process at the
completion of each school year.
After teacher referral, the following guidelines must be met to
be considered for the application process:

- Students must complete and submit the NCVPS student application
by the deadline.
Upon completion of the student NCVPS application, students are
entered into the enrollment process.
No student is guaranteed a spot in NCVPS. The state of North
Carolina accepts students on a first come, first serve, need basis.
High school students are given first preference.
