School voucher program deadline approaching

TERRE HAUTE — The application deadline for Indiana’s school voucher program is Sept. 1.

Parents interested in considering the program must submit all required information within the next 12 days.

To learn more about the voucher program, eligibility guidelines and participating schools, interested parents can visit  www.schoolchoice

indiana.com.

If eligible for the program, parents are advised to work directly with the participating school of their choice.

“Our goal is to get Hoosier families the information they need to choose the educational option that’s best for their children,” said School Choice Indiana President Betsy Wiley.

More than 9,300 students took part in the voucher program across Indiana during the 2012-13 school year, with 289 schools participating. For 2013-14, more than 456 schools are participating.

When parents receive a voucher, the state helps pay for tuition at a private school, depending on the family’s income. Students qualifying for the federal free-and-reduced lunch program ($43,568 for a family of four) are eligible for a voucher worth up to 90 percent of the state tuition amount for the school district of residence.

Children from families who earn up to 150 percent of the free-and-reduced lunch eligibility (around $65,352 for a family of four) can receive a scholarship for up to 50 percent of the state tuition amount.
