There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 725,000 children living in Iowa. Families in Iowa can choose from traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

National School Choice Week (NSCW) informs, inspires, and empowers parents to discover the K-12 education options available for their children, including traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private, and home schooling.

Every January, tens of thousands of schools, organizations, and individuals plan unique events and activities to shine a positive spotlight on effective education options in their communities.

In 2024, we are partnering with 207 schools and organizations in Iowa to raise awareness of K-12 education options.
