SB 442 (2024)

Increase EFA income eligibility, extend phase-out funding for public schools


Allow students whose enrollment transfer request was denied to enroll in the Education Freedom Account (EFA) program.

The Senate rewrote the bill. The new bill raises the income cap for families participating in the EFA program from 350% to 400% of the federal poverty level. The bill then decreases the percent of funds a scholarship organization may keep to administer the program, from 10% to 8%. The bill also extends the timeline for phase-out grants for public schools when students leave to use EFA program funds, from 2026 to 2029. Lastly, this bill treats EFA students the same as home-school students for the purpose of calculating "average daily membership in attendance" for state public school funding.
