district incident background

Lee County

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.

We’d love to hear from you! If you have questions or need assistance, please contact us at 804-278-9200 or via our contact form. ~ Patricia Beahr, Assistant Director of Government Affairs
