|Information for Nonpublic Schools|
The North Carolina legislation which creates the Opportunity Scholarship and Disabilities Grant directs nonpublic schools which participate in either program to meet several requirements.
Nonpublic schools must be fully registered by August 1, 2017 in order to receive award payments on behalf of recipients for the 2017-18 school year. Email completed registration documents to the respective program no later than June 30 to ensure a timely review of documents prior to the final deadline.
Homeschools registered with the North Carolina Division of Nonpublic Education (NCDNPE) do not complete the registration process required to participate in the Opportunity Scholarship or Disabilities Grant. This process is only for conventional private elementary/secondary schools already registered with the NC Division of Nonpublic Education.
Families with homeschools registered with the NC Division of Nonpublic Education cannot receive Opportunity Scholarship funds on behalf of students.
Families with homeschools registered with the NC Division of Nonpublic Education can apply to be considered for a Disabilities Grant.
