(Chantal Lovell, NPRI) – LAS VEGAS — Responding to the overwhelming interest in Nevada’s new Education Savings Accounts program, the Nevada Policy Research Institute unveiled a new website today, NevadaESA.com.
With an extensive list of frequently asked questions that are continually being updated, tuition and contact information for Nevada’s private schools, an events list and application tips, the new website will become the go-to resource for parents and schools looking for more information on ESAs.
In response to launch of the new site, NPRI’s President Sharon J. Rossie offered the following remarks:
Since Gov. Sandoval signed Senate Bill 302 in June, NPRI staff have spoken with thousands of Nevada parents who are eager to find out what Education Savings Accounts mean for their children and learn how to best utilize the grants. NevadaESA.com will serve as a great tool for everyone with an interest in ESAs, from parents who have heard about the program and need more information, to those looking for application assistance, to private schools wanting to learn more about what the law means for them.
In the coming weeks and months, we will reach even more parents — particularly those in traditionally disadvantaged communities — to let them know they now have options when it comes to their children’s education and we are excited to have a place to send them to learn more.
For many Nevada families, Education Savings Accounts mean their children can, for the first time ever, attend private school, be taught at home, or receive the individualized education needed for life-long success. Children who have been stuck in failing schools now have a path to attend a school that is exceptional, and we want to make sure all parents learn how they can direct their child’s education dollars.
Rossie added that NevadaESA.com will be continually updated as SB302 makes its way through the regulatory process so those interested have the most up-to-date information at their fingertips.
