On behalf of our statewide charter school community, the Pennsylvania Coalition of Public Charter Schools (PCPCS) extends our heartfelt sympathy to the family of Dr. John Chandler, CEO of PA Virtual Cyber School, and the entire school community.

Dr. Chandler dedicated his life to students and had a profound impact on so many.  He was a veteran of cyber charter education, first in Michigan including as one of the founders of Michigan Great Lakes Virtual Academy, and then at PA Virtual Cyber Charter School.  Dr. Chandler also served on the advisory board of PCPCS.

These words cannot express the impact of a life well lived or the gravity of the loss, including his dedication to providing an exceptional experience for K-12 students, both here in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.  We are truly thankful to him.

PCPCS stands ready to support the Chandler family and the PA Virtual Cyber Charter School community during the difficult times ahead.
