For the 10th consecutive year, the last week of January has been officially recognized as Indiana School Choice Week by the state’s governor.
Around the country, National School Choice Week raises awareness about opportunity in education, encouraging families to celebrate their school options and be actively involved in their children’s education.
Gov. Eric Holcomb joined more than a dozen other governors, as well as hundreds of county, city and town leaders who have officially recognized the week.
Indiana parents, schools and other organizers have planned more than 900 virtual events and activities, including virtual information-sharing, school spirit days, at-home family celebrations and more.
These activities aim to spark conversations about the educational opportunities parents want for their children, and the importance of exploring and identifying the best school fit for each child.
“Indiana families have many educational choices and this is a week to celebrate and raise awareness about those options,” said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week.
“We hope that all students can find a learning environment where they are challenged and inspired, and we’re grateful to Gov. Holcomb for officially recognizing the week.”
