Choice Scholarship Program

Colorado Supreme Court agreees to hear appeal regarding Choice Scholarship Program

On March 17, 2014, the Colorado Supreme Court announced it will hear an appeal regarding the Douglas County School District (DCSD) Choice Scholarship Pilot Program.

The Court is expected to now receive briefs on the merits, hear oral arguments by the parties, and eventually issue a decision. Based on the compelling legal reasoning and analytical strength of the decision by the Court of Appeals, the Douglas County School District and Board of Education are highly confident in the outcome. Furthermore, the program was patterned after similar programs upheld by the Colorado Supreme Court, the U.S. Supreme Court or other state courts. Read More...
 

Court of Appeals Rules in Favor of Choice Scholarship Pilot Program

The Colorado Court of Appeals ruled in favor of the Choice Scholarship Pilot Program (CSP) on February 28, 2013, overruling the decision of a Denver District Court judge, which put the program on hold in August of 2011.

The Colorado Court of Appeals' ruling rejected the ACLU's constitutional claims and the statutory claims of other plaintiffs.

About the Choice Scholarship Program

Passed in March of 2011, the Choice Scholarship Pilot Program will provide up to 500 Douglas County students with scholarships for the qualified private-partner school of their choice. In order to be eligible, students must be Douglas County School District residents who are currently attending a DCSD school and have been in the District no less than one year.
