  • Print

October 29, 2017 National School Choice Week (NSCW) 2018, a week designed to raise public awareness of all types of effective education options for children, including traditional and charter public schools, magnet, private schools, online academies and homeschooling, kicks off January 21-27, 2018.

During this week, thousands of events, meetings, and activities will be held by schools, organizations, and individuals across the country to celebrate. These events will shine a light on effective education options for children, including traditional public schools and public charter schools.

Now is the time to start thinking about how you will celebrate NSCW, and what you can do to raise awareness around school choice. Here are a couple ideas to get you started:

  • Sign up for a box of free NSCW supplies: Parents, supporters, schools, homeschool groups, chambers of commerce, and other organizations can receive free supplies, including NSCW signature yellow fleece scarves.
  • Learn the NSCW Dance: Teach your school the official NSCW dance and perform it during your NSCW celebration. The song for 2018 is "Better When I'm Dancin'" by Meghan Trainor.
