NEWSLETTER: 2014-2015 School Year

Dear Digital Public School Families,
Welcome back to school.  This is an exciting time for students and parents as we kick off the 2014-2015 school year.  My name is Kimberly Platt and I am the President of Digital Public Schools Alliance, a coalition of Washington digital school families and supporters dedicated to the long-term viability of digital public schools in our great state. 
My daughter Mackenzie is starting her eighth year as a WAVA student and I am both proud and excited for the way WAVA has prepared her for college. She has thrived as a digital public school student and is now continuing that success as a Running Start student as well. With another great school year ahead of us, I hope to have the opportunity to meet some of you in the coming weeks at back to school events.
I want to commend all our parents who, over the last several years, have worked hard to educate state policymakers about the importance of digital public schools. 
Thanks to your efforts, the Washington State Legislature is better informed about the benefits of digital public schools. As we start the new school year, I urge you to go to our website and sign up for our updates about digital public schools and be sure to Like our Facebook page
I also encourage you to register to attend our Digital Public School Capitol Day, which will be held in Olympia onMarch 6th.   This is a great opportunity to meet other digital public school families and learn about our state government. In order to continue making progress towards educating policymakers on the importance of parent access and choice in digital public schools, and ensure sustainable funding and quality programs, your parent voice needs to be a part of the public debate. Your participation makes a real difference to decision makers in this state.
Thank you for signing up to receive email updates. If you’d like to play an active role in advocating for our schools, please email me.
Thanks for your support, and I look forward to working with you to promote digital public schools.
