Beginning in 2016, all Nevada students will have an opportunity to attend private school, online school, or home-based education thanks to the new Nevada Education Savings Accounts (ESA) program.
Under the program, the parents of participating students will receive a portion of funding the State of Nevada spends on public school students — between approximately $5,100 and $5,700 per year — to pay for non-public school education and related expense.
Parents decide how and where to spend the money, empowering them to truly direct their child’s education for the first time ever. The Nevada ESA program means families who could never before afford to send their child to private school now have the ability to do so.
Parents who’ve wanted to teach their children at home now have the financial resources to direct their child’s education as they see fit.
Students struggling to keep up in school can get the attention and individualized education they need, while their peers who long to be challenged can reach their full potential.
