We have been working diligently on efforts to get kids back into school through advocacy efforts with Open FCPS, National Open School Groups, communicating with other counties as to how to get their movements more active and assisting where we can with the Fairfax Accountability Coalition’s recall effort (Open FCPS Coalition). As schools in some of Northern Virginia are set to open (supposedly), we are exploring the concept of starting a micro school or charter school.
We are highly educated and motivated parents and want to have a good option for those who can’t swing private school but can no longer tolerate public school. We get the dilemma and many of us are in that boat. Some of us have seniors or children who have only a couple of years left and are hoping to leave a positive mark for those who are young enough to be able to recover from this and not be so affected by what is going on now. We want to work towards a solid future as the state of public schools right now is dire.
Please dm us on our FB public page or on Twitter @Psanova or leave a message here if you would be interesting in chatting about the possibility of opening a school. We have accomplished a lot in the last 6 months through different efforts in areas where we had no experience. We are sure that we could tackle this with the same might and have the contacts now to help us accomplish something this grand.
We look forward to hearing from you!
