Currently, tax credit programs are the safest school choice option for Colorado, given the recent Colorado Supreme Court decision in Taxpayers for Public Education v. Douglas County School District. Any future voucher legislation should fund the program exclusively through state rather than local revenues in order to comply with the Colorado Supreme Court’s decision in Owens v. Colorado Congress of Parents.

Model Legislation: Education Savings Account, Parental Choice Scholarship Program (Universal Eligibility), Parental Choice Scholarship Program (MeansTested Eligibility), Special Needs Scholarship Program, Foster Child Scholarship Program, Autism Scholarship, Great Schools Tax Credit Program, Family Education Tax Credit Program
