Dear Oregon Virtual Public Schools Alliance Family,
If you’re interested in a fun and engaging way to teach your children about how the government works and show your support for virtual public education, I hope you’ll join me – along with many other students and parents -- for Virtual Schools Capitol Day on Wednesday, March 13 at the State Capitol Building in Salem. Click here to register now!
Virtual Schools Capitol Day is an opportunity to thank legislative champions, show support for virtual public schools and talk to our legislators about protecting this important education option. Students will have the opportunity to participate in educational activities and visit state legislators. Never met with a legislator? No problem! We’ll walk you through how it’s done.
Please make sure your voice is heard in the halls of the Capitol. This is a unique opportunity, and I hope you will attend Virtual Schools Capitol Day on Wednesday, March 13. Please register today!
