The Ponca City Public School District is preparing for the spring semester enrollment for the Ponca City Virtual Academy (PCVA).
In order to attend PCVA for the spring semester, parents need to complete a spring application. Applications can be found on the PCPS website, https://www.pcps.us under the Parents & Students tab. To be eligible for PCVA spring semester, applications must be completed and returned to the Registration Center at 111 West Grand. In order for students to begin the spring semester on January 5, 2021, applications must be received by December 14, 2020 by 4:00 p.m. Students on the current waiting list for the first semester will be contacted prior to December 14 to determine continued interest in enrollment for the spring semester.
Applications will receive a time stamp and students will be enrolled based on the order in which the application is received. Space for students in the PCVA is limited. Once classes fill, students will be placed on a waiting list according to the time stamp on the application.
High School students requesting PCVA or Wildcat Academy must meet with Karla Streeter, Director of Alternative Education, to enroll in classes for the spring semester by December 18, 2020.
Students who failed to complete First Semester Coursework, grades K-12 must reapply to the program.
Once applications are received and students are rostered into the program, parents/guardians will meet with school officials to receive student devices, workbooks, and handbooks. These check-out dates are set for December 16 and 17. At this time parents/guardians will also sign an agreement with the terms of the program.
If students fail to complete coursework as the semester progresses, they will be placed on probation. If students fail to catch-up within a week, they will be required to return to their home site for instruction.
Since students will be earning credits and completing coursework based on a semester-pacing guide, the final deadline for the spring semester applications is January 29, 2021.
