TUCSON - The 2nd Annual Alliance for School Choice Summer Tour will be at Reid Park Zoo on Saturday.
ASC's goal is to inform parents of educational choice programs available to Arizona families and to help kids get ready for back-to-school in the fall.
Children will be admitted into Reid Park Zoo for free with a paid adult. The first 1,000 kids will receive a new backpack with basic school supplies.
ASC will provide parents with information about the Empowerment Scholarship Account program and school tuition organizations that offer K-12 scholarships.
Various Tucson charter and private schools will also attend as part of a school choice fair, so parents can explore different schools in their area.
The event will be Saturday at the Reid Park Zoo and will start at 8 a.m. and end at 11 a.m.
