School Choice Options In Nebraska
There are a variety of school choice options available for many of the 467,000 children living in Nebraska. Families in Nebraska can choose from traditional public schools, public magnet schools, private schools, and homeschooling.
Nebraska families can use School Choice Week’s resources on a year-round basis 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 171 schools and organizations to host independently-planned virtual events in the state. Our National School Choice Week 2022 celebrations are planned for January 23-29, 2022.
Governor Pete Ricketts issued an official proclamation recognizing Nebraska School Choice Week 2021.
