Sunday is the deadline for Wake County parents to enroll their students in Wake County Public School System’s Virtual Academy. But, their policy says once parents do that, students can’t come to school physically.
Parents with special needs children say they’re frustrated, and are trying to change the rule.
“We really don’t want to be stuck in Virtual Academy,” said parent Patrick Winters. “Her education is going to suffer.”
Winters’ daughter Ari is in prekindergarten at Jeffreys Grove Elementary. She has an auto-inflammatory disease that primarily affects her brain and requires full-time assistance when learning.
