Mayor Schieve Proclaims Jan. 22-28 “Reno School Choice Week”; Joins Leaders Nationwide in Celebrating Opportunity in Education
Nevada students, communities to hold more than 150 events as part of nation’s largest-ever celebration of school choice
RENO, NV – Joining more than a dozen governors and more than 500 city and county leaders nationwide, Mayor Hillary Shieve has proclaimed Jan. 22-28 as Reno School Choice Week. The largest-ever celebration of opportunity in education, National School Choice Week 2017 will feature more than 21,000 individually planned events across the country.
More than 150 events will take place in Nevada. Events include rallies, roundtable discussions, coffeehouse meet-ups, festivals, school fairs, and more.
National School Choice Week is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical effort seeking to raise awareness about the school choice options parents have, or want to have, for their children.
“We thank Mayor Shieve for issuing this proclamation and for spotlighting education options in Reno during National School Choice Week,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. “We hope Reno residents will use NSCW as an opportunity to begin conversations about the various educational opportunities available to their children.”
Held every January, National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort designed to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. Through thousands of independently planned events across the country, National School Choice Week raises public awareness of all types of educational choices available to children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, online learning, private schools, and homeschooling.
