The purpose of this meeting is to allow comments on implementation of the Hope Scholarship Program for the Department of Revenue to consider when drafting emergency rules.

The Hope Scholarship Program was established by HB 1 during the 2018 Legislative Session. It provides the parent of a public school student an opportunity to transfer the student to another public school or to request a scholarship for the student to enroll in and attend an eligible private school if the student has been subjected to an incident of battery, harassment, hazing, bullying, kidnapping, physical attack, robbery, sexual offenses, harassment, assault, threat or intimidation, or fighting at school.
