New Exceptions to the SB302 Grant May Benefit Your Family!
The Nevada State Treasurer’s office has announced that they have made 2 exceptions to the 100-day rule for the SB302 Grant, and Innovation Academy wants to make sure everyone knows about it! These changes will help military families and families of students who are going to be starting kindergarten. Keep reading for the details!
THE 100-DAY RULE
The 100-day rule originally required that your child needed to attend a Las Vegas public school for a minimum of 100 days before qualifying for the SB302 Grant, at which time they could then transfer to a Las Vegas private school utilizing the grant funds. The new changes to this rule will help make this process much easier for some families.
CHANGE 1: SUPPORTING MILITARY FAMILIES
If you are active duty military, your children are no longer required to enroll in a public school for 100 days to qualify for the SB302 Grant. This means that if you meet all of the other SB302 Grant requirements, you can apply your SB302 Grant funds to the school of your choice immediately and not have to worry about making your kids transfer schools!
CHANGE 2: 1st YEAR KINDERGARTEN
If your child is 5 years of age by Sept 30th of the school year, and under 7 years of age, then they no longer need to enroll in a public school for 100 days to qualify for the SB302 Grant. This means that if you meet all of the other qualification requirements for the SB302 Grant, then your child can start their education path at the right school for them, the first time, and no longer need to transfer schools after 100 days!
