Kamm’s Corners Development Corporation (KCDC) and Bellaire Puritas Development Corporation along with The Cleveland Transformation Alliance and PRE4CLE will host the West Park School Choice Fair from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16, at the St. Mary Romanian Orthodox Cathedral Hall.
“Participating schools are K-8th grade, and from across both Wards 16 and 17” said KCDC Executive Director Steve Lorenz.
“It will bring together West Park’s private, parochial, and charter schools,” says JD Smith, who is the Neighborhood Engagement Coordinator at KCDC. “The idea is to connect local families to their local school options in one location, because there are a lot of good choices out there and going through all the choices can be overwhelming.”
According to Smith, he and other organizers want the event to give parents and school representatives a chance to talk one-on-one, offering a more personalized opportunity to connect. Lorenz mentioned that many of these schools fill up fast, noting “if you want to be sure to get your first choice, you really need to make your move now.”
There are currently more than a dozen schools expected to attend this event. There will also be prizes, giveaways, and activities for children. Attendance is free! Contact JD Smith at 216-252-6559, Ext 1300 with questions.
