Concord– Families and educators are celebrating School Choice Week and the empowerment and flexibility that educational options provide New Hampshire students.   

The Week will feature 134 events and activities across the Granite State, including open house events at schools, school fairs, homeschool information sessions, and other celebrations. One of the largest events in the state will be a rally  planned on Tuesday, January 22, 2019 11:00 a.m. at Grappone Conference Center in Concord.   

Nationwide, 40,549 events and activities are being organized to raise awareness during National School Choice Week (Jan. 20-26, 2019), and 10.8 million Americans are expected to participate. It will be the largest series of education-related events and activities in U.S. history. Governor Christopher Sununu issued an official proclamation recognizing Jan. 20-26 as New Hampshire School Choice Week.   

In New Hampshire, there are many educational options, including traditional public schools, public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online learning, and homeschooling. New Hampshire students in families below a certain income level or in areas subject to town tuitioning are eligible for publicly run scholarships. Virtual Learning Academy Charter School offers online courses to New Hampshire residents free of charge, full- or part-time.  

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.   

“When it comes to opportunity in K-12 education, New Hampshire families have a variety of choices for their children’s schooling. We encourage parents to use National School Choice Week to look into these options,” said National School Choice Week President Andrew Campanella.
