choicesexpoFor the first time Los Angeles area parents tomorrow will have a chance to explore school choice options at a convention-style event downtown called ChoicesExpo.

The gathering, which is expected to attract a crowd of as large as 8,000, is intended to help parents learn more about the variety of school options available to their kids, according to the executive producer of the event, Xavier Reyes.

“We have a waiting list of schools. We are trying to create room for them right now,” he said.

Fifty schools, mostly LAUSD magnet programs and charter schools, will have booths at the event. Non-profits that work in schools, like First Five LA and the YWCA, will also be represented.

“We’re excited by the response,” said Reyes. “We’ll have to rent a bigger hall next time.”

The event is free. To find out more click here.
