Ward 8 Education Fair to Feature 30+ D.C. Schools

Parents of rising students in Ward 8 are invited to an education fair Saturday, Jan. 27 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at DC Prep’s Anacostia Elementary campus located in historic Anacostia at 1409 V Street SE.

Representatives from more than 30 neighborhood schools, including District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) and public charter schools, will be available to provide information about their schools to parents.

Parents can also learn about the My School DC 2018-19 application process and the range of school options available in Ward 8.

Invited guests and speakers include DC’s Deputy Mayor of Education Jennifer Niles, My School DC’s Executive Director Catherine Peretti, Ward 8 Council member Trayon White and more.

The event will coincide with the history-making celebration of National School Choice Week 2018, which will feature more than 32,000 school choice events across all 50 states.

This will be the eighth National School Choice Week, which continues to see exponential growth year after year. The initiative began in 2011 with 150 events, and last year, 21,392 events took place during the week.

Each event is independently planned and aims to provide a positive spotlight to the different school choice options parents have or want to be able to have in their local area.

“DC Prep is honored to host an event where DCPS and fellow charter schools can come together for D.C. residents – especially Ward 8 families – to showcase the many public school options available,” said Sindy Tavarez, director of Student Recruitment at DC Prep. “School choice a privilege that D.C. families have. We are so excited to welcome parents and our partner schools to our new state-of-the-art Anacostia Elementary Campus, which will serve preschool to 2nd-graders in the upcoming 2018-19 school year.”
