Who We Are
Nevada Parents for Online Education is a chapter of PublicSchoolOptions.org, a national alliance of parent volunteers whose primary objective is providing access to innovative public education options.
Founded in 2012, Nevada Parents for Online Education seeks to educate Nevada policy-makers about the benefits of public virtual schools and the positive contributions they make to our students’ education.
While traditional schools may be a great environment for most, some students simply need another option. For those who do, Nevada parents recognize the importance of a quality, public virtual education.
Nevada Parents for Online Education aims to protect, promote and advance the success and benefits of public virtual education in The Silver State.

More Than Advocacy
While advocacy and spreading positive news is an important priority for Nevada Parents for Online Education, we sponsor activities that provide your student with a great learning experience.
Joining Nevada Parents for Online Education allows your family to participate in numerous events such as State Capitol Day, regional museum and historic park tours, and family fun gatherings.
We also provide assistance to students wanting to learn more about state government, media and public policy issues through legislative briefings, media workshops and student internships.
