What is the West Contra Costa Education Fair?

The West Contra Costa Education Fair, put on by the West Contra Costa Unified School District and EnrollWCC, gives parents and caregivers a chance to explore their children’s unique needs and learn about the incredible opportunities available in our West Contra Costa schools. From January 22nd to 29th, families can participate in this year’s Education Fair by attending virtual sessions to both meet representatives from the schools in our community and engage in panel discussions around specific topics like special education, African American student achievement, dual language immersion, mental health services, the benefits of a large, comprehensive high school compared to those of a smaller high school, the difference between a traditional middle school and a K-8 model, and many more!

NEW THIS YEAR! WEST CONTRA COSTA SCHOOL CHAMPION AWARDS

This year, the West Contra Costa Education Fair is 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. 

Award winners will be honored at the in-person Education Fair at Lovonya DeJean Middle School on Saturday, January 29 from 10am-1pm.
