Douglas County Choice Scholarship Pilot Program

The Douglas County Colorado Choice Scholarship Pilot Program provides 500 tuition vouchers to any public school students who have spent at least one year enrolled in the Douglas County School District. The program is subject to annual renewal or cancellation by the school board. If more than 500 students apply for vouchers, a lottery is held. Participating private schools can be located outside Douglas County, but students may not use the vouchers for online schools or homeschooling. Parents and community members, appointed by the school board, provide oversight. Currently, the program is not operating pending the final decision of the Colorado Supreme Court.
