GEORGIA--Starting this school year, Georgia is expanding options for parents who have students with disabilities. Through the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Program, parents of special needs students in Georgia public schools who had an active Individualized Education Program during the 2006-07 school year may transfer their child to another public school with capacity or to a participating private school. Scholarships toward private school tuition costs are based on the amount of state funding the public school system receives for the student in 2007-08. Since the bill was signed into law on May 18, more than 5,000 parents have filed an intent form expressing interest in the program.
