Parent/Guardian/ELA Important Info!

NEW: Grades Color Code Decoder Information!

Hello parent(s)/guardians,

I will be sending out to all parent(s)/guardians a color through email to let you know how your student is doing. The colors are sky-blue, green, yellow, orange, or red. Please view the link below to learn what color is what percentage. Due to the confidential information, I will use this way to communicate grades with you all that way we will not have to go through texting or calling for password for password protected document to view grades.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Parent Observer Access Info

Hello parents/guardians of students taking NCVPS courses!

For Japanese 1, we are using the Canvas LMS that has a wonderful feature. It is called "Observer Access" which is design for parent/guardians to be able to view their student's progress in the course. Please click the links below to learn more about it as well as how to set up an account to have "observer access".

I'm looking forward to working with you all this semester.

New: Canvas Parent App Information!

"Parents and facilitators can now download the Canvas Parent app in both the iTunes and Google Play stores.

Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school's e-learning advisor (ELA).

The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student's progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:
View assignment descriptions and due dates
Set reminders for assignments
View assignment grades
View course grades
Set grade alerts
View course announcements
Here are several helpful links:
