In loving memory of Victoria Lynn  


It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of our beloved hero, Victoria Lynn a cornerstone of New Jersey Parents for Virtual Choice. Her dedication, warmth, and unwavering advocacy have left an indelible mark on our community. Victoria's commitment to her family, her service as a Marine, her passion as a teacher, and her advocacy as a parent exemplified the very best in all of us.


As we mourn the loss of Victoria, let us also remember her legacy of kindness and resilience. In honor of her memory, we invite you to contribute to an Amazon list created for her children, who are now under the loving care of her family. Additionally, a GoFundMe has been set up to support them during this difficult time. Your support and generosity will help ensure that Victoria's children are provided for as they navigate this heartbreaking loss.

We will forever cherish Victoria's spirit and the impact she made on our lives. Rest in peace, dear friend.  Thank you for being a vital role in our movement.

On January 26, 2024, we arrived on a Friday, in the rain at the War Memorial. The first ever New Jersey School Choice Expo was a success, and we look forward to the next.

Why is a Virtual Choice important to us?

We need this for many reasons. Some kids learn better with less distractions, because bullying is a problem, mental health issues or immunity issues, other health issues like severe food allergies and schools still suck at making fair accommodations for these children, and because we parents should have a say and option!

My son has a mental disability and we are unable to afford an online school. Most every other state offers free virtual learning. This is ridiculous that NJ won't help us! I AGREE everyone with any disability should have access to free virtual learning!

My son has been bullied and treated as the problem after nothing was done about the bullying. He's been in crisis twice this last school year and the district made him jump through hoops to be able to get back into school. I'm just trying to do what's best for him.

About Us

New Jersey Parents for Virtual Choice is a group of parents who have banded together to put all our efforts into trying to obtain a Virtual Choice to be adopted by the State of New Jersey for our Public school system. As of 2023 Thirty-Five other states have now adopted a permanent virtual model to allow the families who need it to do so.

Our New Jersey Government is against this option because they did not have anything in place prior to 2020 and schools failed because they had no model. The responsibilities fall on them not us! This fight is to broaden School Choice and allow learning options to be expanded to all students of New Jersey. 

Before & After Virtual School - Ian

Before & After Virtual School -- Ian
Before: Ian was bullied, got suspended, and was even sent to the hospital for an emergency psychiatric screening. Eventually his parents found him a special ed school with a smaller setting, but it was not the right fit and Ian continued to struggle. The school system was failing him.
After: Ian is thriving in the virtual setting. He learns better without the distractions of other students, his sensory issues, his anxiety, or other issues interfering. He has had perfect attendance and participation and perfect grades through this year of virtual school. Ian now has more time to pursue music – his passion! – and he has positive social interactions with his bandmates.
Ian has always struggled with the traditional in-person school setting. Families should have a choice in what works best for our children’s education!
33 states have permanent free public virtual school options. When will New Jersey get with the times and join them? New Jersey needs to offer a virtual choice.

Which story are you?

Tell us your story

“My daughter has a rare genetic syndrome that involves a compromised heart, lungs, and immune system. She is too young to be vaccinated (and a vaccine might not even produce antibodies for her) and her team of specialists agrees that in-person school is unsafe for her. She has an IEP and would lose services if I had to pull her out of the district and homeschool her. Her sisters are also too young to be vaccinated and have been attending remote school as well. Sending them back in person would jeopardize her health.”
