Dear Virtual Public School Supporters,
You helped make it happen! Due to the strong voice of virtual public school parents and students, the House Education Committee has cancelled the hearing on HB2170, the virtual school funding cut bill.
The committee planned to consider the bill during a hearing tomorrow, Friday, March 6. Legislators received over 400 emails and numerous calls from parents who expressed their concerns about the impact a funding cut would have on their virtual public school. The cancellation of this hearing proves that your voice matters in the debate over virtual public education and school choice. Well done!
We will keep you informed of future developments in Salem on the issue of virtual education. In the meantime, you can email us with any questions. And don’t forget to sign up for Capitol Day on April 16th (click on the link and scroll down to the bottom of the page to view the registration form).
Thank you for all you do to advocate on behalf of Oregon’s virtual public school students.
