Students and families gathered at the Arkansas Convention Center to educate themselves on the importance of school choice.
This school choice event helps students and families locate all the schools in our area.
This year Arkansas Connections Academy, a virtual school, is an option for families across Northwest Arkansas.
Takayla Powell, a volunteer for the event, said events like these are extremely important in finding the right school.
“There are so many schools in Northwest Arkansas and there are schools from all over and not everyone has the opportunity to know where all of them are or what all of them do,” said Volunteer, Takayla Powell.
This event comes ahead of National School Choice Week happening from January 20 to the 26.
