Members of Washington state’s Digital Public Schools Alliance, who gathered at the state Capitol to lobby on behalf of online public schools, honored state Sen. Andy Hill with their “Pioneer Award” for his work on behalf of digital schools.
The alliance is made up of parents of children who attend digital public schools on a full- and part-time basis.
“These parents have shown great dedication to their children’s education by coming to Olympia to share their stories and concerns, as well as embracing innovative learning opportunities,” said Hill (45th District), a Redmond resident. “Some students, for a variety of reasons, thrive in a digital-learning environment in a way they could not in what we think of as a ‘traditional’ school. I look forward to continue working to make sure those opportunities remain available and productive.”
