The Alabama Accountability Act requires scholarship granting organizations to give priority to students as follows:

1. A student zoned for a “failing school", whether or not they are currently enrolled in a public or private school. Only 25% of all new scholarships can be awarded to students continuously enrolled in a private school during the previous school year. Click HERE to view the Department of Education's list of failing schools.

 

2. A public school student not zoned for a “failing school". By law, scholarships may not be awarded to students zoned to a non-failing school until July 31st of each school year, for the coming school year.

 

3. A private school student not zoned for a "failing school". 

**Note that all students must meet the income guidelines to be considered for a scholarship from Renaissance Scholarships.
