Pennsylvania Virtual Charter School (PA Virtual) was one of the first cyber schools established in the state (est. 2001) and has served thousands of families over the years. We believe in providing a comprehensive education for each student. This includes personalizing learning for each student and providing social and leadership opportunities through monthly field trips and over 20 online clubs.
For the first time in PA Virtual’s history, we have hired one of our alumni as a teacher! Former student Sigrid Gulbis was hired this past summer as a High School Math Academic Support Teacher. Ms. Gulbis entered the first grade during PA Virtual’s second year in business and graduated four years ago. This past May, Gulbis graduated Summa Cum Laude from DeSales University with a bachelor’s of science in math. “It’s interesting to see many teachers who instructed me are still at the school and now are my coworkers,” Gulbis said.
Bullying is no longer limited to children pushing and shoving on the playground where they can easily be caught and disciplined. It happens behind screens and on social media platforms, many of which parents don’t even know exist.
Did you know? Nationwide, school staff and parents are in a heightened state of concern due to the growing number of students involved in bullying. But only 1 in 10 students who are bullied will inform a parent or trusted adult of the problem. October is National Bullying Prevention Month, so we have prepared a two-part blog series to help parents learn more about bullying. The series will help you recognize signs your child may be experiencing bullying, and give you tools to help your child resolve an issue with bullying, and offer tips for preventing bullying.
