Important Information About The Voucher Program

The budget bill (HB1001) passed the Indiana House and now moves to the Senate for a vote. This bill seeks to eliminate the eight pathways currently in place as well as raise the income ceiling to 400% of the amount required for a student to qualify for the federal free or reduced price lunch program. Currently, the income ceiling is set at 300%. As you can read here, there are Indiana Senators who are unsure about "school choice" voucher expansion. Because of this, it is important to reach out to our state senators to support the expansion of the voucher program. Please find your state senator using this link.

Thank you for taking the time to let your voice be heard.
