The Indiana General Assembly will vote Wednesday on SB 567, legislation that would reduce funding and limit choice for virtual school students and families.
Here are the changes to virtual education proposed by SB 567:
-Reduces tuition support to 90% of the foundation amount for full-time virtual students
-Limits enrollment for schools in lowest performance category 4 consecutive years
SB 567 could mean siblings may not be able to attend the same virtual school, and that students would receive less funding than traditional brick and mortar public school students.
Parents must engage the Senate Education Committee today to make their voices heard on this legislation. Our students are not worth less, and parents have the right to choose the educational option that’s right for them without restrictions from state government.
