Choosing a school this spring? A new guide can help


Today is Duval County Public Schools' School Choice Expo, an event designed to help parents choose a school for their child and expected to draw approximately 10,000 people.

In time for the school choice season, the Jacksonville Public Education Fund and the Duval County Council of PTAs have designed a new guide for parents. This guide, which you can see below or download as a PDF, takes you through some of the key steps and important questions to ask yourself as you go through the school choice process.

Download it here, and don't forget to check out our full report on the school choice landscape in Duval County.

Finally, you can research every public and charter school in Duval County on our Learn site - check it out today.
