Weekly Announcement - January 8, 2023

Hello, Durham School of Technology! This is Principal Wright with your weekly update.

We are off to an awesome 2nd semester. Parents, all students received a syllabus for each high school class. Please review this information with your scholar to ensure your scholar and you are clear on the expectations for this semester. In addition, please ensure you have access to canvas and PowerSchool. Please review Canvas, PowerSchool, and your scholar's Durham Public Schools email with them weekly to help them plan for a successful week. If you do not have access to Canvas or PowerSchool, please email Mrs. Alston for assistance at

Durham Tech classes start tomorrow, 1/9/22.  Scholars, if you did not attend the Durham Tech meeting Friday, please report to the lab Monday to pick up your Durham Tech books. Also, check your Durham Tech email if you have not already for information about your on-line book if you have one. In addition, you must check Sakai for information from your professor before class starts tomorrow and to plan for a successful week.

Also, please remember scholars as we discussed in each class last week – your teachers and college professors at Durham Tech are unable to compete with your cell phone. School-wide, cell phones are not allowed in any class. Please plan to have your cell phone out of site during class. Everyone, let’s keep the main thing the main thing – “thriving in a safe learning environment!”

Congratulations to the following seniors on their college acceptances:
Vaughn Horton - Wake Tech Community College, UNC-Greensboro, and UNC-Pembroke
Jordan Vereen - Elizabeth City State University, Fayetteville State University, and UNC-Greensboro

Keep sending in those acceptance letters and scholarship offers, Class of 2023! We are so proud of you!

Thank you for listening! We look forward to seeing each of you in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing, with the right people this week.
Make it a great evening.
