Every year our cyberschool families come together to let our state legislators know how important school choice and online education is to Colorado families and students.
On February 5th 2014, despite the freezing temperatures, hundreds of cyberschool families gathered at the Colorado History Center and marched to the west steps of the Capitol. We were honored to present golden apple awards to the following legislators for their continued support of school choice and online education: Speaker Mark Ferrandino, Representative Libby Szabo, Senator Lois Tochtrop and Senator Mark Scheffel; and we had the privileged to hear Senator Michael Johnston, Senator Mark Scheffel, Senator Andy Kerr, and Representative Paul Rosenthal speak to our students, families, and teachers.
After our march to the Capitol we had the opportunity to demonstrate to our legislators what it is like for students to learn and study in an online environment. We are greatly appreciative of those who were able to attend the demonstration: Senator Andy Kerr, Representative Perry Buck, and Senator John Kefalas.
