AUSTIN (KXAN) — Students are just a month into the new school year, but one Austin group says it’s never too early for parents to plan ahead.
The Austin School Expo is an annual event that offers parents a chance to explore different schooling options for their kids. The expo will provide free information about different day cares, homeschooling groups, extracurricular activities, public schools and charter schools.
“We’ve got a ton of different options and exhibitors a lot of these people, and parents in general, just wouldn’t get exposed to unless they went out looking for them,” event coordinator Stormy McBride said. “This gives them a concise place to see a lot of them.”
The event aimed to showcase local educational facilities so that they’re easily accessible to families.
While parents studied up by attending free seminars and chatting with vendors, their kids enjoyed the last part of their weekend by playing on bouncy slides.
The expo was held Sunday from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. in two locations.
