Public Act 100-465​PDF Document established the Illinois Invest in Kids Act. The Act includes a five-year tax credit scholarship program for eligible students who attend qualified non​public schools in Illinois.

A portion of the Act requires that 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.​

If, for any reason, a scholarship recipient is unable to be tested, school staff must maintain detailed documentation as to why the student did not test. Documentation for scholarship recipients who did not test must be submitted along with scores for all other scholarship recipients who did test.
