HOUSTON -

This weekend, parents will have the opportunity to see the multitude of options when it comes to picking the next Houston Independent School District school for their child.

The HISD School Choice Fair will be held on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Hattie Mae White Education Support Center in the 4400 block of West 18th Street.

Families will be able to meet with representatives from more than 70 HISD schools.  HISD offers everything from magnet programs to preschool programs to career and technical education academies and early college high schools.

“In HISD, we are committed to providing equity in access to quality educational programs for all students,” said Assistant Superintendent of School Choice Dave Wheat. “We want to help families choose an ideal school for their children based on the students’ interests, talents, and needs.”

The schools at the fair are those that still have space for the upcoming 2013-2014 school year. The representatives from these schools will be available to answer questions, provide detailed information about their campuses and help parents fill out the applications at the fair.
