Job Description

The North Carolina Virtual Public School (NCVPS) was established by the North Carolina State Board of Education as an online community service K-12 public school for students throughout the state of North Carolina. NCVPS is governed by the North Carolina State Board of Education (NCSBE) and reports on a day-to-day basis to the Executive Director of the NCSBE. As a result of NCVPS’ work, students in the public schools of North Carolina have access to online courses that are unavailable due to teacher shortages or scheduling conflicts. These courses provide students with equity of access to a high-quality educational experience regardless of where they live within the state.


NCVPS is looking for highly qualified NC-certified teachers to serve as subject-matter experts on course development teams. The qualified applicant should be knowledgeable of course design frameworks such as the Universal Design for Learning principles, Revised Bloom’s Taxonomy, and backwards design.

The applicant should have a strong understanding of curriculum standards and experience creating engaging lessons and activities that promote active learning through problem-based learning, real-world examples, authentic assessments, and more. The applicant should have high organization and self-management skills and own a personal computer, phone/other communication device, and Internet access.

Independently or with a partner, the Course Writer will:

  • Write content as needed to meet goals and objectives of the NC content standards and NCVPS Instructional Design standards in the provided templates. The content will be engaging to all learners, allow for differentiation, include collaborative assessments and incorporation of 21st Century concepts, and align to Universal Design for Learning (UDL), copyright, and accessibility guidelines.

A final walkthrough of the course will occur if the contractor has met all phase deadlines. If the deadlines are met and the final walkthrough is completed, an additional amount of $500 will be paid at the end of the contract. If the contractor does not meet all deadlines, the final walkthrough will not occur and the additional amount will not be paid.


  • This position is an online (remote) position with one in-person (F2F) meeting day.
  • This is a contract-based position.
  • Internal applicants are preferred and will be screened first; However, external applicants will be considered.
