THIS MONTH: Hawaii Families, Educators Find the Positive in Education by Celebrating School Choice Week

THIS MONTH: Hawaii Families, Educators Find the Positive in Education by Celebrating School Choice Week

Aloha State Parents Find New Ways to Celebrate Learning, Support Opportunity for All

PR Newswire

HONOLULU, Jan. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In the midst of a school year like no other, Hawaii families and educators are gearing up to safely spotlight education options during School Choice Week 2021.

Hawaii families, schools, and organizations are hosting 79 virtual or at-home celebrations during the Week. Among these will be a series of virtual "Hawaii Education Exploration" activities, including a live board game session over Zoom and an online teacher appreciation day.

Taking place annually since 2011, School Choice Week is America's largest celebration of educational choice. While typically the Week is packed with large, in-person events, school choice advocates have adapted to this year's health and safety protocols, opting for drive through scavenger hunts, virtual information sessions and showcases, online contests, drive-in movie screenings, and more. Across the country, more than two dozen iconic U.S. landmarks and notable buildings will light up in special colors to mark the Week.

A growing number of communities have issued proclamations recognizing School Choice Week, including Honolulu.

"When families choose from different quality educational offerings in Hawaii, they select the learning environment that best matches their values and heritage," said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. "This Week is an opportunity to show gratitude for great schools in Hawaii and work toward more personalized learning options for all families."

In Hawaii, there are a variety of educational options available including: traditional public schools, charter schools, private schools, online schools, and homeschooling.

Hawaii families will be raising awareness about these choices at their virtual celebrations, which make up some of the more than 33,000 planned nationwide to spotlight K-12 education options.

To download a guide to Hawaii school choice, use the Schools Near Me tool to search for schools in your area, or see celebration photos and proclamation updates, visit schoolchoiceweek.com/hawaii.

National School Choice Week is an independent public awareness effort; the Week is nonpartisan, nonpolitical, and not related to any legislative advocacy campaign.

Select local celebrants are available to discuss their plans with reporters upon request. For information on celebrations planned near you, reach out to us with information about your coverage area at pressoffice@schoolchoiceweek.com.

National School Choice Week shines a spotlight on effective education options for children and is the world's largest celebration of opportunity in K-12 education. The Week is a not-for-profit effort that focuses equally on traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private, and home education options. Every January, participants plan tens of thousands of events and activities to raise awareness about school choice across all 50 states. Year-round, National School Choice Week develops resources and guides to assist families searching for schools or learning environments for their children.
