H103 - 2022 Appropriations Act. (SL 2022-74)
Session Year 2022
Overview: Section 8A.4 of S.L. 2022-74 requires the State Education Assistance Authority (SEAA) to establish a rule regarding Opportunity Scholarship and Personal Education Savings Account eligibility for four-year-old children. SEAA must adopt the same factors for four-year-old eligibility as the rule adopted by the State Board of Education pursuant to G.S. 115C-354(d) for four-year-olds attending public schools. A child who turns four by April 16 is eligible to attend school the following year if the principal, or equivalent, of the school finds that the student meets the adopted requirements.
This section became effective July 11, 2022, and applies beginning with applications for scholarship grants for the 2023-2024 school year.
