Navigating Educational Options
With the incredible uncertainty of the 2020 – 2021 school year, a lot of families are searching for what options are available when thinking about:

· Supporting my child’s learning
· Ensuring my child’s success
· Building my child’s confidence as a learner

Our Main Street Scholars panel will be discussing a number of different educational options and paths to get your questions answered. We are here to help parents be brave and take control of their child’s education. From public school to private school to homeschooling to concurrent enrollment, we will walk through considerations of each and provide insight into some of the lesser-known educational options.

This is a free webinar! Main Street Scholars believes that all families should be aware of these options as making an informed choice ultimately supports student success, which is a stronger future for us all.

This session will be recorded. If you cannot attend the live session, please register and the link to the recording will be sent to you following the session.
