Private School Choice Programs: "New Private School" Registration Information

"New Private School" Requirements for Applying to Participate in the

Private School Choice Programs (PSCP)
for the 2022-23 School Year

The deadline for a "new private school" to register for the

2022-23 school year is August 1, 2021. 

 

State law establishes the requirements and deadlines all private schools must meet in order to participate in the PSCP.  All private schools new to the PSCP that are interested in participating in the PSCP must register with the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) and complete the fiscal management training whether the school currently exists or not. The requirements and deadlines established in state law vary based on whether the private school is considered a "new private school" or an "existing private school." See the Registration webpage in order to determine if your school is a "new private school" or an "existing private school."  The following are required for "new private schools."

If a "new private school" intends to participate in the PSCP for the 2022-23 school year, the individual that will serve as the school's PSCP administrator must complete all of the following no later than August 1, 2021. If the PSCP administrator does not complete all of the following by August 1, 2021, the school will not be eligible to participate in the PSCP in the 2022-23 school year.
