The Virginia Home Education Association is holding the first-ever statewide home schooling conference here in Charlottesville. It will be held all day Saturday at the Covenant Church on Rio Road.

School Board Scolds Member
The Albemarle School Board approved a motion Thursday night that expressed their disappointment with the recent actions of member Gary Grant.

Board Attorney Mark Trank said, under questioning from Grant, that there is no policy that states that this is behavior is not permitted. WINA has the story.
