Congratulations are in order! Katherine Corrado, a social science and global studies teacher at Woodgrove High School has been selected by National History Day® (NHD) and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as one of only 15 teachers to contribute to “Building a More Perfect Union.”
“Building a More Perfect Union” is a new collection of lesson plans and essays in support of the NEH’s special initiative to advance civic education and the study of U.S. history and culture in preparation for the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 2026. These classroom materials will help middle school and high school social studies teachers engage students with unique primary sources and themes of democracy and citizenship throughout United States history.
Corrado’s lesson plan, "The Monroe Doctrine: Debating America’s Defense of Independence Abroad," challenges students to analyze the debates surrounding the Monroe Doctrine and evaluate the short-and long-term effects of the doctrine on American identity at home and abroad. Her lesson plan offers compelling and guiding questions, inquiry-based activities, opportunities to consider multiple and competing perspectives and supplementary materials. The 15 educators chosen to contribute lesson plans represent NHD affiliates in California, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Korea, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

Governor Northam has signed the Tax Conformity bill making it effective today March 15th.

Conformity of the Commonwealth's taxation system with the Internal Revenue Code. Advances Virginia’s date of conformity with the Internal Revenue Code from December 31, 2019, to December 31, 2020. The bill deconforms from the suspension of the overall limitation on itemized deductions and the reduction in the medical expense deduction floor for taxable year 2017 and taxable years on and after January 1, 2019, and from the provisions of the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) related to the net operating loss limitation and carryback, a loss limitation applicable to taxpayers other than corporations, the limitation on business interest, and certain loan forgiveness and other business financial assistance. The bill provides an individual and corporate income tax deduction or subtraction, as applicable, of up to $100,000 for Rebuild Virginia grants and certain amounts related to Paycheck Protection Program loans.

Over 200,000 animals are used in experiments each year in the US. Even the survivors may be killed if they are considered no longer useful to the laboratory.

COVID-19 Vaccine | Loudoun County, VA - Official Website

***This is a message from the Loudoun County Health Department***

Last week, the Virginia Department of Health launched the statewide system for vaccine pre-registration, which includes a ‘Check the List’ feature, where individuals can search by their email address and phone number to confirm whether they are registered.

Many individuals who submitted a Loudoun County pre-screening survey prior to 5:00 p.m. on February 12 are unable to find themselves in the ‘Check the List’ function. Please rest assured that we have all registrations submitted on February 12 or earlier on our waitlist.

Virginia Department of Health officials have indicated that the system continues to be improved and that data migration continues.

Issues identified last week, such as case sensitivity on email addresses, have been resolved but data cleanup and migration are continuing. State officials have acknowledged that some individuals may still be unable to find themselves in the centralized system. Even if you cannot find yourself in the statewide registration system, everyone who has previously submitted a pre-screening survey to Loudoun County is still on our waitlist, and your place on the waitlist will not be affected by the glitches in the new system that are currently being resolved. Anyone who has submitted a pre-screening survey to Loudoun County does not need to submit a new pre-registration in the statewide system.

We ask for your patience as VDH continues to stabilize the data that was imported into the centralized registration system from Loudoun County and from health district across Virginia, and to get the site working at its full capability.

As a reminder, while pre-registration has transferred to a statewide system, Loudoun County Health Department will continue to be responsible for appointment scheduling – both by email and by phone. We will continue to systematically work through our local waitlist of people who have signed up to receive vaccine before 5:00 p.m. on February 12.

Loudoun County continues to vaccinate people with appointments six days a week. We are contacting individuals in the order pre-screening survey submissions were received for appointments, as vaccine supplies allow, and in accordance with a state-mandated allocation formula between priority groups. See the current priority groups in Phase 1a and Phase 1b.

Scheduled Appointments and Second Doses

The change to the statewide system will not impact individuals who have already scheduled an appointment or who are waiting to receive a second dose.

If you have already scheduled an appointment or are waiting to receive a second dose, you do not need to look for yourself on the statewide pre-registration list or submit a new pre-registration in the statewide system.

A good day here in Richmond - two of my bills passed the House, having previously passed the senate! Manufacturers will now be prohibited from testing cosmetics on animals and cosmetics tested on animals will not be sold in VA. The second bill makes a pilot program permanent that allows utilities to install additional broadband capacity when making grid improvements and lease that capacity to last mile-providers. This means thousands of miles of new broadband throughout the Commonwealth as we leverage actions that benefit the grid to connect the approximately 500,000 Virginians without access to broadband. Thanks to the Humane Society of Virginia, Cruelty Free International and other animal welfare advocates for support of the first bill and the Administration for support of the second bill.

Senator Boysko, I have reached out to your office several times in regards to an issue my spouse and I are having with unemployment since March 2020 due to states not communicating properly, can you please contact me back so that we might finally resolve this issue??
https://youtu.be/8PbjxU-Db3w Keep trying to Pimp MINORS OUT FOR MONEY it’s going to catch up to YOU ! God BLESS.
Would love to have you weigh in on the suggestions in the linked thread for how and where to build bridges across the Potomac between NoVA and MD. Even better if you'd be interested in sharing said suggestions with your colleagues :) https://www.facebook.com/groups/3000149976878900/permalink/3125415381019025/?comment_id=3125428437684386
Considering you line your pockets in perverted socially constructed CULT MONEY while you turn your head knowingly IGNORING THE OBVIOUS I’d say you are pretty excited about this. There shouldn’t be 1 little Girl in this state begging for privacy and safety and NOT 1 Parent getting ignored for pointing out the obvious REALITY Y E T your club has been LYING & doing exactly that since Day 1 How many kids do you know that have wrong ge****ls by accident ? How many genders was it again you said there was ? How many little Girls attempting awareness in being violated, threatened and stripped of rights have you IGNORED? How many Parents on the books in Va being stripped of rights while you ignore their cry’s for help ?
Senator, can you please verify that you are not taking per diem while working from home? Thank you.
Good luck this week with SB5034. Guide the bill through with NO further exclusions!
Hi Jennifer. My insurance is telling me they don't know about the $50 insulin cap for Virginians. Can you please help me?
Thank you, Senator Boysko, for hosting the Teacher Town Hall with the LEA today! We appreciate your public service!
Can this get fixed?
I would like to encourage you to message the Governor to order a shelter-in-place for Virginia..
