As you may be aware, lawmakers in Columbus are currently reviewing the Ohio Department of Education’s (ODE) EdChoice Program. A final decision has not yet been reached as of February 15, 2020. There is a chance that the laws surrounding the program may change before April 1, 2020, which is when the EdChoice portal is set to open. Once more concrete details are in place, we will share them with our families.

Our recommendation is that all families who are eligible based on the current laws should submit their paperwork to Holy Name as soon as possible. This way, it can be submitted as quickly as possible if/when the portal opens.

If you are assigned to an EdChoice eligible public school and are new to the scholarship, the application (request form) can be found here: EdChoice Scholarship Program 2020-2021 Request Form

If you are renewing an EdChoice Scholarship, you can find the application here: EdChoice Scholarship Program 2020-2021 Renewal Form

If you do not live in an eligible school district, you may qualify for the EdChoice Expansion Program based on your income. To learn more about the scholarship and to download the income requirements, please visit the Requirements for EdChoice Expansion Students. *If applying for this scholarship, you must complete the same EdChoice application as mentioned above. You must also turn in an income verification form to the state, not Holy Name.

If eligible for either the traditional EdChoice Program or EdChoice Expansion Program, please submit the following to the Holy Name Main Office:

– Complete application (request or renewal) from the Ohio Department of Education website. Please note the guardian signing the application must be the same guardian to sign the check once your application is accepted.

– Copy of your student’s birth certificate. Make sure the student’s name on their birth certificate matches the name written on the application.

– Copy of a utility bill. The complete bill must be submitted and it must prove residency. A complete list of acceptable bills is given on the application.
