Check back often for news, events and information from the Ohio Council of Community Schools.
Each year in January, OCCS celebrates National School Choice Week. We strongly believe in advancing educational choice and advocating for the school choice movement. OCCS proudly sponsors 48 community schools, including brick-and-mortar, virtual and hybrid-learning schools.
During National School Choice Week, we make it our mission to highlight the celebrations and personal stories of students benefiting from their school choice. We represent over 30,000 students across Ohio with unique stories and reasons why their school is the best fit for them.
If your school or student is participating, please share your celebrations on social media so that we can see! Follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn) and tell us why you support school choice. Use the hashtags #SchoolChoiceWeek and #SchoolChoice to spread the word. Please note that this year, celebrations are virtual to limit the spread of COVID-19.
Schoolchoiceweek.com has a digital backpack including ideas, resources, and printable activities for celebrating in the classroom and from home.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
