Dear WCCUSD Community,
I want to make sure you heard about this year’s Education Fair hosted by WCCUSD and EnrollWCC. From January 22 to 27, families can attend virtual sessions to engage in panel discussions around specific topics including:
- Mental Health: Raising Kids in the Social Media Age
- College Financial Aid: Navigating the FAFSA and CADAA
- #GOingtoCollege: Exploring Five Key Elements When Selecting a Perfect-Fit College
- A Conversation on Latino First Generation and DACA College Experiences
- Special Education Beyond High School: What Comes Next?
- African American Students: The Journey to College
- Choosing the Best Fit K-12 School for Your Child
Families can also attend a virtual fair event, Saturday, January 29th, 10 am-12 pm. This is an online opportunity to connect one-on-one with representatives from the schools in our community as well as local community organizations and college partners.
There is also a “help desk” section to offer families one-on-one support. There will be representatives from The Richmond Promise there to support the completion of FAFSA and CADAA applications. There will be a team from the WCCUSD Technology Department to support individual family technology needs.
This is a free event for all and Spanish translation will be available for all virtual sessions from Jan 22-27. I encourage you to RSVP as soon as you can by filling out the form at bit.ly/2022WCCEdFair. And please, help get the word out so that all families in our community know about this exciting opportunity to learn more about the incredible programs and services our schools have to offer!
The West Contra Costa Education Fair is also thrilled to introduce the West Contra Costa School Champion Awards to honor all of the hard work of West Contra Costa’s school support staff. The WCC School Champions will be celebrated online throughout January and February!
