On February 6, over 250 virtual school students and parents joined us in Salem to show their enthusiastic support for virtual public education. They rallied on the front steps of the Capitol, and walked the halls of the State Legislature to talk to their representatives about the importance of keeping virtual education as an option for Oregon families. Several key legislators were on hand to accept the Golden Apple Award. This award is presented to lawmakers who have supported efforts to expand access to virtual public schools.
If you attended Capitol Day this year or in a previous year, thank you so much for your support. For those of you who have not been able to join us for our Capitol Day event, you can view photos here.
