Dear Virtual School Family,
In 2009 a group of virtual school families gathered on the steps of the State Capitol in Salem to demonstrate their support for virtual public education. Now in its 10th year, Virtual Public Schools Capitol Day continues to give families - like yours! - an opportunity to tell their legislators why virtual public education is an important option for so many Oregon students.
Your participation will help make Capitol Day a success. I hope you will join other virtual school students and parents to celebrate the 10th Annual Virtual Public Schools Capitol Day on Tuesday, February 6, 2018.
As many of you know, Capitol Day is an opportunity to thank our legislative champions, show support for virtual public schools and talk to legislators about protecting this education option. Students can participate in educational activities and visit their state legislators in the Capitol Building.
Please join my family and other virtual school families in Salem on February 6. Click here to register now.
