Service Learning is an important aspect of community life at PA Virtual. The mission of the Student Services Department is to provide PA Virtual students and families with an atmosphere that supports the needs of self and family and encourages a spirit of leadership through community outreach. In January 2016, millions will come together to volunteer and honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, who never stopped asking the question, "What are you doing for others?"
By Maurice Flurie, Joanne Barnett and Patricia Rossetti As educators of schools that teach more than 36,000 students, we welcome reforming Pennsylvania's charter school law. We are, however, extremely disappointed that the needs of students and opinions of parents are seemingly being ignored in the current political debate. The Pennsylvania Department of Education has increased its oversight of public cyber charter schools over the past three years. The accountability measures of House Bill 530, recently passed in the House and currently residing in the Senate, will only improve those efforts. These changes are welcomed by the CEOs of all 14 public cyber charter schools in Pennsylvania.
