The John M. McKay Scholarships for Students with Disabilities Program provides the option for students with disabilities for whom an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) or a Section 504 Accommodation Plan (excluding temporary 504 plans) has been written to attend a public school other than the one to which the student is assigned, or to provide a scholarship to enable a student to attend a private school of choice.

You may choose a school other than your child’s current assigned public school if:
Your child was enrolled and reported for the October and February surveys in a Florida public school (grades pre-K -12), or the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind, and
Your child is eligible for a program for students with disabilities and has an IEP or a Section 504 Accommodation Plan
