In 2012, the state of Ohio began the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program (JPSN). This program uses tax dollars to allow students with learning differences to attend non-public schools.
North Coast Tutoring Services has been a provider to the Jon Peterson Scholarship since its inception. We provide academic services to students according to the needs list on their IEPs. This past year, NCES helped get the scholarship increased from $20,000 annually to $27,000. (Click here to read the story!)
Families are able to apply for the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship twice a year. We are currently in the middle of an enrollment period. In order to receive the scholarship, your child must meet the following criteria:
– Must live in the state of Ohio
– Must be attending school (kindergarten through 12th grade)
– Clinically diagnosed with a disability
– Must have a current Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
– CANNOT be attending a public or charter school while on the scholarship
The current enrollment period ends on Sunday, November 15, 2015. All application must be received at this time. This enrollment period is for a half-year scholarship, which will run from January 2016 – June 2016. Beginning in February 2016, families will be able to reapply for a full-year scholarship.
