Missouri Senator Bob Onder Supports Family’s Lawsuit Over Education Options
JEFFERSON CITY, MO (STL.News) – Missouri State Senator Bob Onder, R-Lake St. Louis, is supporting a lawsuit aimed at enforcing the intention of a key education bill passed by the Missouri General Assembly.
In 2018, the General Assembly passed Senate Bill 603, sponsored by Sen. Onder. This legislation, which is now law, expands the Missouri Virtual Instruction Program, established in 2007, and creates the Missouri Course Access and Virtual School Program. This new program expands opportunities for eligible students to access online education, also known as virtual education, through their school if the provider meets certain requirements.
