Jon Peterson Scholarship: How to Renew
The scholarship renewal periods for the 2016-2017 school year are February 1 through April 15, 2016 and October 1 through November 15, 2016.
Students who are currently receiving a Jon Peterson Special Needs scholarship can renew the scholarship for the 2016-2017 school year as long as they meet the following requirements:
- They take all required state achievement tests for their grade level.
- Continue to be identified as having a disability by their resident school district; and
- 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 2016-2017 school year.
