The Alaska Policy Forum recently held a webinar to inform Anchorage families about three of many options available for those who no longer want to enroll their children in the Anchorage School District.

Controversy erupted last month when the Anchorage School District released a memo stating that they would impose burdensome restrictions on financial support for many families who have children dual-enrolled in public correspondence programs and fulltime private schooling.

Stacey McIntosh from Mat-Su Central School, Kim Bergey from Raven Homeschool, and Leigh Sloan from The Green Room Learning Community joined Bethany Marcum and Sarah Montalbano from Alaska Policy Forum for an online presentation and Q&A about educational options for Anchorage families. The presenters explained the details of their programs and important dates for families interested in signing up. After the presentation, McIntosh, Bergey and Sloan fielded questions from the audience.
