Oklahoma – 2012 – HB3090 – Scholarships for Students with Disabilities

The introduced version of House Bill 3090 clarifies that acceptance of a Lindsey Nicole Henry Scholarship will have the same effect as parental revocation of consent to service through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and that the amount of a scholarship will be prorated to reflect the number of school days remaining if the scholarship is granted after the beginning of the school year. The measure specifies that the State Department of Education will notify private schools of the amounts for scholarships within 10 days after receiving the request when total State Aid factors have been determined for the current fiscal year.


The measure also extends until May 31, 2013, the Special Education Statewide Cooperative Task Force and requires a draft report by December 31, 2012, and a final report by May 31, 2013.
