If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact Christopher Bronson.
Please announce the student and parent surveys through announcements, email list for students and parents, etc. We also need you to complete the teacher survey. The surveys will be available until January 8.
Spring 2016 GCSVPS Courses
As we prepare for the next semester we will be evaluating teachers based on their communication, meeting attendance, and class performance. Be on the lookout for contracts and course information for Spring 2016!
GCSVPS is Now Recognizing Students of the Month!
Our virtual teachers nominate one student from their class each month, and then two students are chosen: one student from a core course and one student from an elective course.
For December our Students of the Month are:
- Koriah Smith, a student at High Point Central High taking English I with Mrs. Crane.
- Benita Ehm, a student at Eastern High taking Journalism with Mrs. Paylor.
The student will be recognized by the Virtual Learning team with the following:
a certificate recognizing their selection
a $10 gift card donated by a local business or restaurant
a picture of the student with his or her e-learning advisor and/or principal posted on the Virtual Learning Website.
Here is a link to view monthly winners!

We are excited about these new recognitions and hope that we continue to see great growth with GCSVPS!
