NOTICE OF SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Students who apply for and receive a scholarship may first attend an eligible private school under the program beginning in the 2016-17 school year.
A parent or guardian who is interested in the Special Needs Scholarship Program should independently verify the participating private schools and the specific terms, eligibility criteria, and application procedures of the scholarship program with the DPI. However, the following are some of the initial eligibility requirements that a child must meet in order to receive a program scholarship that covers attendance at an eligible private school beginning in the 2016-17 school year:

Additional information about the Special Needs Scholarship Program should be available on the website of the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction: http://dpi.wi.gov/.
