Pitt Co charter school to open with grades K-6 for the first year

GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) – The new charter school in Pitt County set to open this fall will be for grades K-6.

The State Board of Education formally approved the addition of one grade for Ignite Charter Academy’s inaugural year.

The charter school originally planned to be a K-5 school and open last fall, but it had to delay its charter by one year because of location issues.

The school told the Board it wants to accommodate students who wanted to start last fall

It expects to have 252 students for the 2016-2017 school year at the old Eastern Carolina Vocational Center.

According to the school as of April 1, slots are still open for grades 3 through 6.
