The state treasurer’s office late Wednesday released proposed regulations for the creation of Nevada’s upcoming education savings accounts.
The draft rules aim to provide the widest implementation of the program, which will offer about $5,000 for each student to attend a private school or for homeschooling, according to the regulations. Parents of children enrolled in the program will receive quarterly payments from the treasurer’s office.
Eligible students must attend a public or charter school for 100 days, with no more than 15 consecutive absences, prior to submitting an application for enrollment in the program. Early applications and the proposed rules are available at http://www.nevadatreasurer.gov/schoolchoice/home.
The treasurer’s office will host a workshop on Aug. 21 at 9 a.m. to field public comment on the draft regulations.
