Good afternoon Raiders!  The purpose of this Friday message is to provide information regarding Ignite Online Academy!

Durham Public Schools will be launching Ignite Online Academy as a virtual school for grades K-12 in the 2021-2022 school year.  Ignite will be the virtual learning option for the 2021-2022 school year.  Ignite Online Academy will enroll students through a commitment form HERE.  Ignite is an excellent option for families who are enthusiastic about online learning, are homeschooling currently, or have already made their decision to enroll in online learning for the 2021-2022 school year!  Families that commit through the form would officially move their placement from their base or magnet school to Ignite for the entire 2021-2022 school year.  All families who wish to receive virtual learning in the 2021-2022 school year must use the form to sign up for Ignite.  Families that need more information can attend the Ignite Virtual Q&A sessions ( on Sunday, April 25th at 4pm or Monday, April 26th at 7pm.  There are links to the commitment form and the virtual Q&A session in the mail that accompanies this phone message.
