To demonstrate the diverse experiences available to virtual school students, Florida Virtual School (FLVS®) presented 2014 Florida Virtual School Day at the Capitol on Wednesday, March 14. Students, parents, educators and administrators gathered on the second floor of the Capitol Rotunda to showcase the virtual school setting. Legislators, staff, and other visitors stopped by to peer over the shoulder of a student and see first hand the world of online education. Florida Virtual School 2014 Day at the Capitol brings the virtual education experience to the members of the Florida Legislature to demonstrate the importance of “choice” in meeting student needs for customized learning that can happen any time, any place, any path, any pace.TM
Shown above, Rep. Karen Castor Dentel (D-Maitland) took a moment to observe and learn from Calista Lehocinsky, 12, from Tallahassee, as Calista shared her virtual classes. Castor Dentel serves on numerous committees, including subcommittees on Education Appropriations and K-12 Education, and will be considering legislation this spring that addresses online and other education issues.
