What’s more, once a student qualifies for Choice, they can keep their voucher through 12th grade even if family income rises, as long as they do not voluntarily leave the program.
Students applying for Choice must meet applicable residency, age, prior year attendance, and income requirements described here: https://dpi.wi.gov/choice. To determine eligibility, parents must APPLY ONLINE here: https://sms.dpi.wi.gov/ChoiceParent/.
