EdChoice Scholarship: Information for Districts

Public school districts play a crucial role in the application process of the EdChoice Scholarship Program.  Once participating private schools submit EdChoice scholarship applications into the secure online application system, the public school districts review the applications to confirm whether or not the students meet the eligibility criteria.

The first application period for the EdChoice Scholarship Program for the 2014-2015 school year is February 1 through May 9, 2014.  The second application period is July 1 through July 31, 2014.

Each year, a list of designated public schools is posted.  Schools on the current list are those that, for at least two of the last three school years, have either:

  1. Received a Local Report Card rating of Academic Emergency or Academic Watch for 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 and received an overall grade of “D” or “F” on the Performance Index and Value-Added progress dimension on their 2012-2013 building report card; or
  2. Ranked in the lowest 10 percent of public school buildings by Performance Index score.
Note:  Public schools that received an overall grade of “A” or “B” on the Performance Index and Value-Added progress dimension on their 2012-2013 building report card are excluded from this list.

To find out which students are eligible to apply for an EdChoice scholarship, please visit the Am I Eligible? webpage.

Note:  Public school districts do not review EdChoice expansion applications or have access to those applications.
