National School Choice Week

Do you know all of the educational options available for your student? National School Choice Week, which runs January 20-26, is dedicated to giving parents access to the best K-12 education options for their children. These options include traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online academies and homeschooling. In conjunction with this national week, Northwest Ohio Scholarship Fund (NOSF) will be hosting a school fair at the Franciscan Center on Saturday, January 26, to give parents more information on these different schooling options. Parents can also learn about the funding available through NOSF and the Ohio Department of Education. At the end of 2018, the Ohio Department of Education released its list of 2019-2020 Designated Public Schools for the EdChoice Scholarship Program. Some local schools made this list, meaning students in these districts could receive a voucher to attend a provider chartered private school.
