The Ponca City Public Schools is preparing for the spring semester enrollment for the Ponca City Virtual Academy.
In order to attend the PCVA for the spring 2022 semester parents need to complete an application which can be found on the PCPS website, https://www.pcps.us , under the Parents & Students tab. To be eligible for the spring 2022 semester applications must be completed and returned in-person to the Registration Center at 111 West Grand. In order for students to begin instruction for the spring semester on January 4, 2022 applications must be received in-person by December 3, 2021. The Registration Center hours are from 8:00 to 4:00 Monday-Friday.
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 due to staffing. Once classes fill, students will be placed on a waiting list according to the time stamp on the application. Since the program can only accommodate a limited number of students those with medical issues will be given priority. All students considered for enrollment in the PCVA for the spring semester will be required to participate in an interview to be admitted to the program. After applications are received interviews will be scheduled by phone. Please ensure phone numbers on the student application and PowerSchool are current and in working order.
If students were unsuccessful in PCVA in prior years due to absences or poor work habits the application will not be considered. Also, if a student was dismissed from the PCVA in the past due to failing probation the application will not be considered.
Once applications are received, interviews conducted, and students rostered into the program, parents/guardians will meet with school officials to receive student devices, workbooks, and handbooks. At this time parents/guardians will also sign an agreement to 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 spring semester applications is January 28, 2022. Again, space will be limited.
