LANCASTER, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Private school leaders in Pennsylvania will honor Pennsylvania
Representative Jim Christiana for his support of school choice on
Friday, January 29.
Pennsylvania Council for American Private Education (PACAPE) will
present the School Choice Champion Award to Representative Christiana on
behalf of Pennsylvania private schools. The event will be held at the
Willow Valley DoubleTree Resort in Lancaster on January 29 at 9
a.m. during the Association of Christian Schools International Northeast
Regional Administrator Board Conference.
This event is timed to coincide with National School Choice Week
(January 24-30, 2016), which will be the largest series of
education-related events in U.S. history.
“PACAPE is thrilled to celebrate National School Choice Week with
leaders from across our state and to present the PACAPE School Choice
Champion Award to Representative Jim Christiana. Representative
Christiana works tirelessly to promote education options for the
children of Pennsylvania because no child should be forced to attend a
school solely based on their ZIP code,” said Dr. Merle Skinner, PACAPE.
Over 400 school administrators from the northeast region of the
multistate area are expected to attend the conference. The School Choice
Champion Award is sponsored by PACAPE, which includes the Association of
Christian Schools International, PA Catholic Conference, Mid-Atlantic
Region of Agudath Israel, Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of
America (OU), and PA American Montessori Society.
