Thank you to all the virtual public school families of the Commonwealth who wrote letters, sent e-mails, and made phone calls in support of HB 324. Governor McAuliffe signed it into law!
The Governor’s support is vital, as we focus on the bill being passed again next year. If that happens, Virginia Virtual Academy can become a full-time school providing grades K-12, allowing families peace of mind that the school will be available year after year without uncertainty created by individual school districts.
If you would like to thank Governor McAuliffe and his staff for trusting parents with school choice, make sure you’ve signed up here and have joined our Facebook group. Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
This has been a great year for school choice across the country and I’m so happy to see that Virginia has made that list. We appreciate our legislators saying #ITrustParents — and hope they will continue their support in the 2016 legislative session.
