Event at the Depot Museum will celebrate school choice options for students and families
CHEYENNE, Wyo. – On Wednesday February 28, the Wyoming chapter of PublicSchoolOptions.org will host its annual 2018 Wyoming Capitol Day to celebrate virtual education and school choice. The event will be attended by families, students and teachers from across Wyoming who benefit from public virtual education and other school choice options.
The event begins at 10 a.m. at the Cheyenne Depot Museum where attendees will hear from school choice leaders and write letters to their legislators sharing their personal school choice stories. Attendees will then take the trolley to hand-deliver their letters to legislators.
PublicSchoolOptions.org believes that every child, regardless of their zip code or how much money their parents make, deserves the best start in life. We firmly believe that begins with a parent’s ability to choose the school where their child will thrive — whether that’s in a traditional brick and mortar school, public virtual school, charter school, home school, or private school. Every child learns differently, even within the same family. Giving parents options so their child can succeed is critical.

STATEMENT FROM AMY NELSON, PUBLICSCHOOLOPTIONS.ORG WYOMING PARENT LEADER:
“We are excited to join with families from across Wyoming to celebrate the incredible opportunities school choice, especially virtual education, has provided for our children. These schools are working for our children and we are pleased, as parents, to be able to choose this option for them. We hope lawmakers and education officials will continue to establish policies that put more trust in parents and provide them a seat at the decision-making table. Every child deserves access to the educational option that works best for them.”
