Nebraskans Prep for Virtual Celebrations as Governor Ricketts Proclaims Jan. 24-Jan. 30 "Nebraska School Choice Week"

Nebraskans Prep for Virtual Celebrations as Governor Ricketts Proclaims Jan. 24-Jan. 30 "Nebraska School Choice Week"

Nebraska communities to hold 171 virtual festivities during national celebration of K-12 education

PR Newswire

LINCOLN, Neb., Jan. 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- For the seventh consecutive year, the last week of January is being recognized as Nebraska School Choice Week by the state's governor. Gov. Pete Ricketts has officially proclaimed Jan. 24-Jan. 30 to be Nebraska School Choice Week, joining more than 20 governors and hundreds of city, county, and town leaders who have issued similar proclamations so far.

School Choice Week, in Nebraska and nationwide, seeks to raise awareness about opportunity in K-12 education and shine a positive light on great schools of all types: traditional public, public charter, public magnet, private, online and homeschool.

This year the celebration is entirely virtual, and Nebraska parents, schools, and other organizers have planned 171 virtual or at-home activities. These events may be as large as a virtual multi-school fair or as simple as a family decorating placards about why they are grateful for choice. All activities aim to spark conversations about how different educational choices meet families' needs and help kids succeed.

"Nebraska families can use this Week to celebrate the educational options and achievements that have already changed children's lives, and to speak up for the options they are still waiting for," said Andrew Campanella, president of National School Choice Week. "We are grateful to Gov. Ricketts for his proclamation and to Nebraskans for joining the National School Choice Week celebration."

National School Choice Week shines a spotlight on effective K-12 education options for children. As a not-for-profit effort, the Week focuses equally on traditional public, charter, magnet, online, private, and home education options. Every January, participants plan tens of thousands of events and activities –– such as school fairs, open houses, and student showcases –– 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. The effort is nonpolitical and nonpartisan and does not advocate for legislation.
