Public Act 100-465 established the Invest in Kids Act. The Act includes a 5-year tax credit scholarship program for eligible students who attend qualified non-public schools.
A portion of the Act requires that, beginning in the 2019-20 school year, scholarship recipients shall be annually assessed at the qualified school where the student attends school in the same manner in which students that attend public schools are annually assessed pursuant to Section 2-3.64a5 of the School Code and that such qualified schools shall pay costs associated with this requirement.
