What a crock of shit.  The survey asked the parents.  Didn’t bother to check the test scores of the kids.  Of course the parents think their kids did great.  They got A’s when they used to get D’s and F’s.  People are such idiots.

ORVA is open to all students in grades K through 12 who reside in Oregon. The rigorous and engaging curriculum offered by the school includes courses in language arts/English, math, science, history, world languages, art and music, as well as elective and Advanced Placement® courses for high school students. State-certified teachers provide instruction, guidance and support, and interact with students and parents via email, web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face meetings. As a public school option, there is no tuition.

ORVA students receive a well-rounded education and one that prepares them for successes after high school,” said Brandy Osborn, Head of School of Oregon Virtual Academy. “We at ORVA are proud of our school, our teachers, staff, and students. ORVA is a great choice for families who are interested in being actively involved in their children’s education.”

Flexibility is a key benefit for ORVA students.

Nice how an announcement about graduates starts out with two paragraphs about the bullshit school they’re graduating from.  Isn’t graduation supposed to be all about the students and their accomplishments?

Oregon Online School Honors Graduates at In-Person Ceremony

77 Online High School Students to turn their tassels at June 4 event

06:00 ET from Oregon Virtual Academy

SALEM, Ore., June 2, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Oregon Virtual Academy (ORVA), a tuition-free, online public school serving students in grades K-12 will host an in-person graduation ceremony for its class of 2016 graduating seniors.

ORVA provides a flexible learning environment for students, allowing them to complete their school work on a schedule that works best for them. While working with the award-winning K12 curriculum, Oregon state-certified teachers provide assistance helping students fill in skill gaps and move toward high school graduation.

Graduation provides an opportunity for students who have completed their academics online and developed friendships virtually to meet in-person to celebrate. Previous years graduates have gone on to attend prestigious colleges and universities such as Oregon State University, Liberty University, Santa Monica College and University of Oregon.

The commencement speaker addressing the graduates is Eric Knox, an All-Pac 10 basketball player at Oregon State University and Portland resident. Knox is a pastor at Imago Dei church and coaches basketball at Benson High School. He is also the founder of Holla Foundation, a youth focused organization dedicated to changing the narrative of vulnerable children and families through culturally responsive mentorship.

Additionally, ORVA valedictorian Sarra Hawash will address her fellow graduates. "I am very excited to have the opportunity to participate in graduation because I have had such a great experience with ORVA," said Hawash. In the fall, Hawash will attend Oregon State University’s Honors College where she will major in bio-health towards a pre-med degree. She then hopes to attend Oregon Health and Science University and one day become a pediatrician.

"Graduation is a special time for teachers and staff at ORVA," said Brandy Osborn, Head of School for ORVA. "It is an opportunity to celebrate our student’s success and wish them well on their next academic journey. We are so proud of all our graduates."

Media is invited to attend the celebration and event details are provided below.
