Louisiana Connections Academy Principal Wood encourages families considering virtual school to attend an information session because virtual education, while a great choice for many families, may not be a good fit for some. “Virtual school requires parents to make a commitment to be involved in their child’s education,” Principal Wood said. “At our information sessions, we let families know what they can expect in the virtual school setting, and what it takes to succeed. We want students to thrive at Connections Academy and understanding how it all works is essential.”
