Expand School Choice-Remove District Caps
For the 2019-20 school year, law dictates that no more than 4% of a school district’s membership may participate in the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP). This percentage is set to increase by 1% every year until 10% is reached, afterward the cap will be removed. This model unfairly restricts school choice and hinders qualifying families from participating in the program.
Increase Income Eligibility in the WPCP
The Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) income requirement is set at 220% of the federal poverty level while the Milwaukee Parental Choice Program (MPCP) and Racine Parental Choice Program (RPCP) income requirements are set at 300%. It is unfair that parents outside of Milwaukee and Racine are held to a tighter income requirement. This regulation denies families access to school choice!
Expand School Choice-Remove Grade Entry Points
Participation in the Racine Parental Choice Program (RPCP) and Wisconsin Parental Choice Program (WPCP) is artificially limited, allowing students to only apply when entering certain grade levels. This rule denies many qualifying families access to school choice.
