Texas 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 2827 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 Greg Abbot issued an official proclamation recognizing Texas School Choice Week 2021.
