The Gardiner Scholarship and the McKay Scholarship
The Department of Education’s Office of Independent Education and Parental Choice presents information about the Gardiner Scholarship Program and the John M. McKay Scholarship Program for Students with Disabilities. These programs were established to provide Florida parents and students with additional education options and they operate under the premise that parents should make decisions regarding their children’s education. The programs offer student-directed funding and parent-directed choices. The presentation includes a discussion of eligibility requirements, application options, approved uses for scholarship funds, and parent responsibilities under the programs.
