Jon Peterson Scholarship: How to Renew

The scholarship renewal periods for the 2014-2015 school year are February 1 through April 15, 2014 and October 1 through November 15, 2014.

Students who are currently receiving a Jon Peterson Special Needs scholarship can renew the scholarship for the 2014-2015 school year as long as they meet the following requirements:

  1. 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;
  2. Continue to be identified as having a disability by their resident school district; and
  3. Have a current individualized education program (IEP).

Parents of renewal students who meet these requirements must complete a Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship form and submit it to the private school/provider that their child will attend for the 2014-2015 school year.
