This policy is being developed in compliance with applicable Florida law.

This law provides that students in public schools are eligible to apply for a Hope Scholarship if they are subjected to an “incident” as that term is defined in F.S. 1002.40(3). The policy outlines provisions related to eligibility, required investigations, parental notification, statewide assessments, and the terms of a Hope Scholarship. 

This new policy outlines that students are eligible for a Hope Scholarship if it is established that the student was subjected to and subsequently reported an “incident”. 

These proposed revisions encompass the suggested language from NEOLA.
