Fairs will be held in conjunction with fourth annual National School Choice Week

North Carolina parents interested in more information about high performing public charter schools in the Tar Heel state can attend informational charter fairs in Greensboro and Charlotte, organizers announced today.

The fairs will cater specifically to parents looking for a high-performing public charter school for their child, or to educators looking for what a public charter school might be able to offer them. These fairs are being hosted in as part of National School Choice Week 2014, the largest-ever celebration of school choice in American history.

The fairs will be held on January 27 at the Oak Branch Conference and Event Center in Greensboro (23 Oak Branch Dr, Greensboro, NC, 27401), and on January 28 at the University Hilton Hotel in Charlotte (8629 J.M Keynes Dr. Charlotte, NC, 28262). Both fairs are from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.

“We are excited to share the message of educational choice across North Carolina next week,” said Anthony Rodriguez, director of advocacy at the NC Public Charter Schools Association. “Our charter schools participating are eagerly awaiting the fairs so that they can share what they have to offer our state’s students, parents and educators.”

Charter schools interested in tabling at the fairs, or North Carolinians interested in attending the fairs, are encouraged to email Anthony Rodriguez at anthony@ncpubliccharters.org in order to RSVP.

The mission of the NC Public Charter Schools Association (“Association”) is to grow and sustain high quality public charter schools that nourish North Carolina’s children and enrich their families. NC Public Charter Schools Association is a membership coalition of NC charter schools established to serve, represent, and advocate for the interests of the schools and their children, parents, educators, and staff.

National School Choice Week shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for children – including traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.
