Senate Bill 506 would expand Hope Scholarship program

The following bill has been filed for the 2022 Florida legislative session, which begins Jan. 11 and runs through March 11.


TITLE: Hope Scholarship Program

SPONSOR: Sen. Manny Diaz Jr., R-Hialeah

WHAT IT WOULD DO:  SB 506 would expand the state’s Hope Scholarship program, currently for students who experience bullying, to students who attend public school in districts that are subject to ongoing action initiated by the Florida Department of Education. Students who meet the criteria would be allowed to transfer to another public school outside the district or accept a scholarship in the form of an education savings account. Funds can be used for tuition, fees, curriculum, devices and instructional material, or transportation for those students who transfer to other public schools.
