Parents and students looking for a new Chicago public school are invited to attend the second annual New Schools Expo, presented by the Chicago Public Schools and Parents for School Choice. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, January 31, indoors at Soldier Field, Gate 6.
Attendees can meet the leaders of more than 80 campuses of new elementary and high schools created through Renaissance 2010 as well as pre-existing charter schools.
Several schools’ application deadlines are approaching quickly. The Expo is a great way to make sure you get your applications in on time. During the Expo families can research schools from across the city and begin the application process in one short visit.
Guests will also have the opportunity to attend workshops on topics such as: understanding how to choose a quality school for your child, special education at new schools, charter schools 101, and tips from parents with children in new schools.
Admission is free. There is also free indoor parking. If you take the CTA, there will be a free trolley service between the CTA Roosevelt Red Line station and the stadium. The event takes place in Soldier Field United Club Level 1, which will be fully heated.
