Carson Smith Scholarship

I have alluded to this in previous posts, but Utah does already have some school vouchers (scholarship) in place.  I, however, understood that they were limited to autistic children.  I was wrong – the voucher availability is much broader and better than I believed.

This information is available from the ‘pro school choice’ folks’ site.  I’ve only included excerpts from the page that discusses Cason Smith (click the link for details):

Scholarship Amounts
If it is determined that your child would receive three or more hours of special education service per day in a public school, he or she qualifies for a Carson Smith Scholarship worth $6,285.00.

If your child would receive less than three hours of special education service per day, he or she qualifies for a Carson Smith Scholarship worth $3,771.00.

* Mental retardation
