#AskConnections Twitter Chat Feb. 12th, 2013

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to switch to virtual school, or how this rewarding form of education works, you probably have many questions. One great way to find answers is to participate in our upcoming Twitter chat, A Parent’s View of Virtual School. Join experienced Connections Academy parent Melissa Gruber as she chats live on Tuesday, February 12, at 8:00 p.m. EST.

During the chat, Melissa will share her story and answer questions about online school. After trying both the traditional classroom and homeschooling, her children have been thriving as Connections Academy students for four years. With daughters in kindergarten and fourth and eighth grade, she can explain how switching to virtual school can be successful for kids of all ages.

Melissa remembers having many questions as she considered enrolling her students in virtual school. She tells us, “I know many parents are concerned about how educating children at home will affect them, and this is a wonderful program! Connections Academy has not only provided great learning opportunities for my girls but has also given them opportunities they would not have received otherwise.”

To chat with Melissa, follow us @ConnectionsAcad. Then, on Tuesday, February 12, sign in to Twitter and Tweet your questions using the hashtag: #AskConnections.

A Parent’s View of Virtual School chat will be open to the public to help any parents who are considering virtual school for their families, so feel free to tell your friends. We invite you to Tweet this post and share this information with other families via your favorite social media network.

If you’ve already switched to virtual school, tell us what your biggest questions were before you made your decision—and how you’d answer them now! Post your questions and answers in the comments below.
