During National School Choice Week, schools and organizations across Colorado partner with families to raise awareness about the different K-12 education options available to children. This not-for-profit effort is designed to inform and assist parents while shining a positive spotlight on the importance of opportunity in education. In 2021, National School Choice Week will take place from January 24-30, 2021.

Governor Jared Polis issued an official proclamation recognizing Colorado School Choice Week 2021.
