Starting Tuesday, the Wake County school system’s 177 schools will open their doors to help parents make choices about where they want to send their children this fall.

Tours and open houses will be held over the next few months as part of School Expo 2017. With the magnet school application period starting Jan. 12, both magnet and non-magnet schools want to show parents why they’re a good education option for the 2017-18 school year.

Go to http://bit.ly/2hVEFVf to view a frequently updated list of dates and times for individual schools. Parents who can’t make a scheduled event can call the school to arrange to visit another day. Parents can also call schools that are not on the list to find out when they may be able to visit.

Pre-registration for kindergarten for the 2017-18 school year opens Thursday. Pre-registration is a requirement for parents of rising kindergarten students who want to submit a magnet school application.
