To provide parents and guardians with a deeper insight into the Choice Programs and campuses, we invite you to attend the Third Annual CHOICE Expo:
Date: November 14, 2023
Time: 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.

At the CHOICE Expo, you will have the opportunity to meet with school representatives, learn about the unique programs each campus offers, and get answers to any questions you may have. We believe that providing families with this valuable information will help them make informed decisions that best suit their child's educational needs.
"CHOICE empowers families to actively participate in their child's education by offering a variety of specialized programs that cater to different interests and learning styles," said Melissa Correll, Chief Innovation Officer at VISD.
