Shelby County Schools will hold its Optional Schools Fair on Sunday Jan. 8, to help families learn about what the district's 46 optional schools have to offer. Applications to attend optional schools in the 2017-18 school year will be accepted beginning Jan. 27. Optional schools are designed to provide creative and rigorous coursework and extracurricular programs led by teachers who inspire and challenge high-performing students to achieve their best. Every optional school has a specialized learning focus, such as Enriched Academics, College Prep, International Studies, International Baccalaureate, Creative & Performing Arts, Health Science, and Automotive Technology. Learn more here. Principals and teachers from each optional school will be available to meet with parents and students.

New York City’s high school system is built on choice, but in reality many of the city’s low-income students of color are shut out of its top schools. Now, the city is trying to figure out how to give more students a fair shot — and in the process make schools more diverse. Chalkbeat NY has been following this story closely, and now we’re inviting people from across the system to join us in a conversation about what can be done to improve this process. Get your tickets here. Catch up with our reporters and connect with others who care about New York City schools at this solutions-oriented panel discussion and networking event. Your $17 ticket donation supports Chalkbeat, and drinks and appetizers are on us! (Two drink tickets for either beer or wine will be provided to guests over 21 years old.) Happy hour will begin at 6 p.m., followed by a panel discussion at 6:45 with additional time for mingling once the panel wraps. We look forward to seeing you there!
