During National School Choice Week, schools and organizations across Connecticut partner with families to raise awareness about the different K-12 education options available Connecticut families can use School Choice Week’s resources year round to identify schools and learning environments that best meet their children’s needs. During our annual January celebrations, schools and organizations work to organize school fairs, parent information sessions, and other events to help parents learn about their options. In 2021, we partnered with 303 schools and organizations to host independently-planned virtual events in Connecticut. Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022.
