Parents have expressed concern regarding correspondence received from the district promoting its virtual, public school option. Parents are not required to address these communications.
Advertising, such as this, has become more common since post-COVID. Many parents chose to continue home educating, and districts lost funding as a result. School divisions are marketing these programs, specifically, to homeschool parents, to persuade them to return to the government educational system. It is helpful to understand that school districts receive full funding for each student who attends their virtual program.
