EdChoice Scholarship: How to Renew
♦ APPLICATION CLOSED UNTIL FEBRUARY OF 2014 ♦
RENEWAL APPLICANTS: Students who are already receiving an EdChoice scholarship can renew the scholarship as long as the following three requirements are met:
They take all required state achievement tests for their grade level if they are in grades 3-8 and they take all parts of the Ohio Graduation Tests if they are in grade 10;
They do not have more than 20 unexcused absences for the school year; and
They do not move out of the school district in which they became eligible. If they move to a new school district (e.g., moved from Columbus City SD to Toledo City SD, etc.), they would have to be assigned to an eligible school in the new district to be able to renew their scholarship.
Parents of renewal students who meet these requirements must complete the EdChoice Scholarship Renewal Form and submit it, along with a copy of a current utility bill, to the private school that their child will attend for the 2013-2014 school year.
If your child will attend a different private school next year, complete the admissions process at the NEW private school. Once the child is accepted, provide the new school with the Scholarship Renewal Form and proof of current address.
The private school will submit a renewal for your child through the online EdChoice Scholarship application system.
Check the Federal Poverty Guidelines chart.
If you meet the income requirements for your household size and you want to have your income verified to determine if you qualify for low income status, obtain a copy of the Income Verification Form. Complete the Income Verification Form and submit it, along with supporting income documents, to the address listed on the form by the listed deadline to substantiate your income.
In July, the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) will notify by mail those parents who applied during the first application period about whether or not their child has been awarded a scholarship..
In late August/early September, ODE will notify by mail those parents who apply for the scholarship during the second application period about whether or not their child has been awarded a scholarship.
