West Contra Costa Unified School District (WCCUSD) and EnrollWCC are coming together to host the West Contra Costa Education Fair for the benefit of local families on Sat., Jan. 28.

The fair will take place at Lovonya DeJean Middle School at 3400 Macdonald Ave. from 10 a.m. to noon, according to Natalie Walchuk, executive director of GO Public Schools West Contra Costa.

Walchuk recently reported that more than 60 confirmed booths will enable attendees to speak with district and charter schools and connect with local community organizations. See the full list of presenters at the fair below.

Attendees can also check out colleges, swap books and celebrate winners of the 2023 West Contra Costa School Champion Awards, which will recognize school support staff from throughout West County. Attendees are encouraged by organizers to bring gently used books to swap for new titles during the “Book Exchange.”
