EDIT: It appears this information is from last spring, was shared yesterday, and when we saw it, didn’t pay attention to original date :-/ We are researching this to find out if it passed or what parts did, and will keep you updated when we find out. We apologize for any confusion.
Tomorrow is the last day of the Georgia legislative session.
Section 2, lines 60-81 of SB139 (text of bill HERE) includes language that would allow students who qualify for the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship (SB10) to not have to “re-qualify” by completing another year of public school if their families try an alternative option such as returning to public school, homeschooling, or attending another private school that does not accept scholarship.
Currently, the student would have to complete another entire year of public school if you want to use the scholarship in the future.
Contact your state house and senate representatives TONIGHT to voice your support for the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship language in SB139! You can look up your legislator HERE.
