On Saturday, February 7, from 10am-2pm, the Urban League of Greater New Orleans hosts its 9th annual Schools Expo at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The Expo is an annual opportunity for creating equity in school choice toward building a brighter future for all children. By providing a one-stop shop, parents learn about most school options in New Orleans. The event helps parents and guardians of children entering grades Pre-K – 12, offering the opportunity to apply to all public schools in New Orleans (including public charter schools); meet with school representatives; learn about the new enrollment process; learn more about the Louisiana Student Scholarship Program and eligibility requirements; access community resources throughout the city; enjoy free food and festivities; and receive free uniform vouchers, backpacks and school supplies.
The PRIME TIME staff will participate by hosting a community resource booth, and sharing details about PRIME TIME, its success and opportunities to participate in programs throughout the metro area with local parents in attendance.
