Ignite Instructional Model

  • Ignite Family Academy is an Alternative Learning Experience (ALE). ALE is public education where some or all of the instruction is delivered outside of a regular classroom setting and schedule. At Ignite, we provide in-person classes and collaborate with families in their at-home learning (on-site classes are not a requirement). Learning is monitored and assessed by a certificated teacher and planned in collaboration with the student and parent (Written Student Learning Plan – WSLP).

On-Site Classes

  • Ignite Family Academy offers on-site classes for students in grades K-8

    About our classes:

    • Held two days per week on Mondays / Wednesdays and Tuesdays / Thursdays. Field trip excursions occur on select Fridays.
    • Most classes are 50 minutes in length.
    • Multi-grade, clustering students in grades K-2, 3-5, and 6-8.

Family Requirements

  • Time Commitments

    As a public school program, we have two major requirements regarding time:

    • We are required to develop a written student learning plan (WSLP) that includes estimated weekly hours of learning. The WSLP is a flexible document that can be adjusted to reflect your child’s learning.  
    • Students and families must make weekly contact with our staff and hold a monthly progress review with a teacher advisor.
      • Weekly contact is a requirement by the state to ensure the family partnership program is maintaining contact with families and claiming funding for actively enrolled students. 
      • Monthly progress reviews are an opportunity for the families to share what they have been working on, discuss ideas with their teacher advisor and receive support, if needed. The review is a chance for us to make adjustments to the WSLP. 

    On-Site Commitments

    A parent, adult guardian, or designee must be on-site with each elementary student (K-5) during their Ignite classes. We realize this is not always possible for families. Please contact the school if you need to have someone other than the parent or guardian be on site. We will work with families on a case-by-case basis.
