National School Choice Week 2013

National School Choice Week 2013

We had a GREAT week January 27 – Feb 3 2013 celebrating School Choice Week

The Governor proclaimed the week as School Choice Week in Nevada! Read his proclamation here!

During the week, RISE hosted an Introduction To Homeschooling class, various movies on educational reform, a workshop about Online Education and  a charter school open house with more than 13 charter schools in attendance.

Additionally NPRI and RISE co-hosted an Educational Roundtable featuring State Superintendent James Guthrie, State Director Public Charter School Authority Steve Canavero, and State Senator Barbara Cegavske. Over 70 stakeholders in various aspects of education attended.  The yellow scarves shown in the pictures below are celebratory National School Choice Week scarves. We sent a set to CCSD Board of Trustees and CCSD Superintendent. We were also able to send some up to the Legislature, asking legislators to proudly wear them during any votes on Education.
