Bismarck– With education options continuing to expand in North Dakota, schools, families, and organizations celebrated School Choice Week with an unprecedented number of events.   

The Week featured 62 events and activities across the Peace Garden State, including open house events at schools, school fairs, homeschool information sessions, and other celebrations. School choice community events were held in locales such as Williston.  

Coverage of National School Choice Week featured a story on KIWA radio.   

Nationwide, 40,549 events and activities were organized to raise awareness during National School Choice Week (Jan. 20-26, 2019), and 10.8 million Americans are estimated to have participated. It was the largest series of education-related events and activities in U.S. history.   

Celebrated since 2011, National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort. The Week is nonpartisan and nonpolitical, and it is not related to any legislative advocacy campaign.   

“National School Choice Week provides an opportunity for families in North Dakota and across America to evaluate their education options and research different schools in advance of the next school year,” said National School Choice Week President Andrew Campanella.
