The Idaho School Choice Week planning committee has been working diligently to bring the most outstanding School Choice rally to Idaho’s capitol yet!  Creative minds with big hearts are at the soul of this event set to take place on Wednesday, January 27 at the Idaho State Capitol in Boise, ID.

An education session including breakfast and lunch will start at 9:00 a.m. at the Basque Center,601 W. Grove St. in Boise.  Following the education session, there will be a Rally on the Capitol steps from noon until 1:00 p.m., 700 W. Jefferson St.

We are very proud that Shawna Exline, NWPE member and West Ada 2016 Teacher of the Year, will be speaking about the value of school choice to students and to teachers!

Last year’s rally was fabulously fun and this one will prove no different!  Expect a lively crowd which will include a dance performance of the National School Choice Week dance by students covered with yellow school choice week scarves.  It’s a colorful and vibrant experience!  Catch the students excitement as they celebrate choices that meet their needs as diverse learners.

Thank you to the additional organizations sponsoring Idaho’s 2016 Idaho School Week events including Idaho Virtual Academy, Compass Charter School, Learn Storm Idaho, Idaho Virtual Academy, and the Idaho Option Network.
