Q: Who is eligible for the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program?

A: Students who are residents of Wisconsin, outside of the Milwaukee Public School and Racine Unified School Districts, with an Adjusted Gross Income at or below 220% of the federal poverty level are eligible to receive a voucher to attend a private or religious school through the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program.

Q: Who may apply?

A: Any public school student in grades K4-12 who meets the income requirements; Any student who in the previous school year was not enrolled in school; Any non-voucher student currently attending a private or religious school may apply to the program entering 4K through 8th grade; Any student who participated in the MPCP OR RPCP the previous school year.

Q: What if my income increases in subsequent years?

A: The “once in, always in” provision means your child keeps his or her voucher even if family income rises. Family income is determined for each student in the year they enter the program. Families could have some children qualify and others that do not qualify depending on family income in the year each child seeks entry into the program. The “once in, always in” provision applies only if a student continues to attend a school in the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program and does not voluntarily leave the program.
