Important Indiana School Choice Voucher Expansion

The State just passed an exciting expansion to the Indiana School Choice Voucher Program for the 2021-2022 school year.

1. A single school choice voucher tier will be in effect. Every family that qualifies for a school choice voucher will automatically receive the highest school choice voucher level for their school district (examples below). If you have already filed your school choice voucher, this increase will be applied with no further action from you.

PLEASE NOTE - To be eligible for a school choice voucher, a student must meet the income requirements AND the requirements for an Eligibility Track. The Eligibility Tracks that enable a student to be eligible to participate in the Indiana School Choice Voucher Program are listed below

  1. If your child or their sibling received a school choice voucher in a previous school year.
  2. If your child or their sibling received a SGO Award in a previous school year.
  3. If your child was enrolled in a public school in Indiana for at least two semesters immediately preceding their enrollment at Roncalli.
  4. If your child has a disability that requires special education services and an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) has been developed.
  5. If your child would be required to attend a specific public school based on his/her residence that has been assigned a “F” grade.

If your student meets the requirements for one of the Eligibility Tracks AND the Income Criteria, please complete a School Choice Voucher Information Sheet and send it back with your 2020 Federal Tax Return to Amy Kuntz, Financial Aid Advisor at akuntz@roncalli.org.

If your family meets the income criteria, but your student does not qualify for one of the Eligibility Tracks, you can apply for a $500 Scholarship Granting Organization Award. Receiving a Scholarship Granting Organization Award will provide a Track to a school choice voucher in the subsequent year provided you continue to meet the Income requirements. Please complete the SGO Application and send to Amy Kuntz, Financial Aid Advisor at akuntz@roncalli.org, along with your 2020 Federal Tax Return.

If you have any questions, please contact Amy Kuntz, Financial Aid Advisor at akuntz@roncalli.org.
