Donors Choose Project
The DCPS Opportunity Academy Virtual Learning Program is asking for your support in funding incentives for our virtual students to encourage their attendance, reward their hard work and perseverance, and honor our first virtual graduates. We have created a Donors Choose project to support this effort where you can donate directly on the site. In addition, in honor of Black History Month, on February 8th the site will double any donations that have been received so please donate early in whatever amount you can. Please pass the link along to anyone in your community whom you think would be interested in supporting our program. Thank you.
