|Subject:||Keystone Scholarship Program|
|In the near future, I will introduce legislation that establishes the Keystone Scholarship Program for Exceptional Students, which provides scholarships to students in Kindergarten through 12th grade to allow the parents of these children to purchase the best educational option available to education their child, these options consist of tuition and fees, textbooks, tutoring, curriculum, corresponding materials and exams, and training programs.
The goal of this legislation is to expand the options for parents of children with special needs including those who have been designated as Gifted. It allows the family to decide which educational environment most effectively accommodates the student’s needs. Among other criteria, an eligible student who can receive a Keystone Scholarship includes a child:
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation, so that we can provide more educational options for exceptional students throughout the Commonwealth.
