Dayton Public to launch online school


Dayton Public Schools will launch an online school this fall with two main goals – preventing dropouts by offering a nontraditional model, and bringing back students who have left for other online schools, hurting district revenue.

The Dayton Innovation Virtual Academy will be open to grades 9-12, but will be limited at first to 50 students, with hopes to expand. Students will receive a computer and wireless internet access, and can do the work from home. Like regular public school, it will be free.
