This memorandum is to inform divisions of an opportunity for students to participate in the Virginia General Assembly Page Programs offered by the Senate and the House of Delegates each year during the Virginia General Assembly Session.

This program, which was temporarily suspended during the 2021 session due to COVID-19, will be available to students again in 2022. Additionally, this memo clarifies how schools and divisions should account for absences accrued by participating students.

The purpose of the Page Programs is to facilitate a structured environment in which young Virginians embrace responsibility and accountability, develop professional characteristics through strict standards of conduct and engage in the legislative process through work, observation and discussion. More information on the program, eligibility, and application can be found on the Virginia Senate and House Page Programs webpage (link below).
