    NCVPS is offering resources and support for all NC public schools. NCVPS is hosting a series of webinars, NCVPS Talks, which will dive into tips and tricks for successful transitioning from face-to-face learning to virtual learning. Additionally, NCVPS is offering to accept transfer students at no cost to the districts into any NC Virtual course. A transfer student is one who is currently in the class with a f2f teacher but cannot attend due to the closures. This is a great opportunity for seniors who need to finish their coursework for graduation. Lastly, NC Virtual has 20+ online courses in the Canvas Commons for districts to use. These will only be viable for districts that use Canvas. Learn more about these opportunities by visiting their website: https://ncvps.org
