Also, please be aware of the following budget veto by the Governor. VACo opposed HB 389 (LaRock) during the 2016 General Assembly Session.

Parental Choice Savings Accounts

The Governor vetoed HB 389, which allows parents of certain students with disabilities to apply to their resident school division for a Parental Choice Education Savings Account. VACo opposed HB 389 because of a provision that transfers payments made to the local school division on a per-pupil basis under the Standards of Quality to be deposited into the savings account and used for certain student expenses, including tuition, fees, or required textbooks at a private elementary or secondary school or preschool that is located in the Commonwealth.

VACo Contacts: Dean Lynch, CAE; Larry Land, CAE; and Beau Blevins
