National School Choice Week Pizza Party and Miss Virginia Screening

Connecticut Charter Schools Association is excited to announce that they will be celebrating National School Choice Week (January 26-February 1, 2020) with a special spotlight event!

The event will feature a pizza party and will take place at Common Ground High School. Students and teachers will enjoy a pizza party and screening of Miss Virginia Hailed as a “must-see” movie by USA Today, the film follows a struggling inner-city mother who sacrifices everything to give her son a good education. Unwilling to allow him to stay in a dangerous school, she launches a movement that could save his future—and that of thousands like him.

The Connecticut Charter Schools Association is a nonprofit membership organization that serves as a unified voice for the 22 public charter schools, representing their interests at the state and local levels.

Started in 2011, National School Choice Week is the world’s largest annual education-related celebration. The goal of NSCW, which features participation from tens of thousands of schools and organizations, is to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options for children.

During National School Choice Week, schools across America celebrate the challenging, motivating, and effective education they provide to students. At the same time, parents use the week to learn more about the education options available to their children, in advance of the upcoming school year.

National School Choice Week is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and is not related to any legislative advocacy efforts.
