The contract for content uses the allotted ADM figure (not the projected ADM) as a basis for its costs since it is a stable number known well in advance. Your cost for the next school year will still be the allotted ADM figure even if there are more or fewer actual users of the system.
You are paying NCVPS to have a course with a teacher to work with the student and modify the learning based on student needs. The courses that NCVPS shares for free contain all the digital content to develop a local version of the course with a district teacher. Most schools that use the free NCVPS shared courses do so to create blended learning opportunities for students to supplement the traditional face-to-face classroom.
