Cyber Alert - We Need You to Call Your Representative NOW!
June 4, 2013 -- Yesterday the House Education Committee voted House Bill 618 and House Bill 980 out of committee. These bills will now go to the House floor for a vote as early as tomorrow. If HB 618 or HB 980 pass, it would cut the funding for our public cyber schools by as much as 10-15 percent. This loss would be devastating for our schools. A dramatic cut like this would mean that all schools would have to cut staff, increase class size and reduce services. Smaller cyber schools have indicated that this cut will close their doors!
