Nevada Accepting Applications For Education Savings Accounts

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — The Nevada Treasurer's Office is now accepting applications for education savings accounts, even though state funds likely won't be flowing into them until April.

The office posted the application on its website Wednesday, and will be accepting the forms through Nov. 30. The program allows parents a portion of their child's per-pupil state education funding to use at a private school or for other qualifying educational expenses.

The law passed by the Nevada Legislature this spring requires enrollees to attend at least 100 days of public school before qualifying for the money.

Students who attended public school in the 2014-2015 school year can use those days to qualify, but should submit an application before starting private school this year to be eligible for funds as soon as they become available.
