Sen. Kehoe
State Senator Chris Kehoe paid a special visit to iHigh Virtual Academy on Wednesday, Sept. 15, to see first-hand the benefits of online learning from students and teachers at the district’s online high school. The Senator was joined by Board President Richard Barrera and Superintendent Bill Kowba. The District representatives urged the Senator to support legislation that would allow school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools that offer online education courses to claim attendance toward average daily attendance on the basis of a pupil's attendance in an online course or courses that satisfy prescribed criteria.
