The Florida Legislature this year created the Reading Scholarship Account program to help public school students in third through fifth grade who are struggling readers. This program offers parents access to education savings accounts, worth $500 each, to pay for part-time tutoring, summer and after-school literacy programs, instructional materials, and curriculum related to reading or literacy.
Applications are open now. The Reading Scholarship Account Program is administered by non-profit scholarship funding organizations approved by the Department. For the 2020-21 school year, Step Up For Students is the only SFO administering the program.
