It is imperative that we do not take for granted that the McKay Scholarship Program (MSP) is a permanent program in Florida. The program must have champions raising their voices to educate the public and policy makers on how important this program is to Florida’s children with disabilities.
Since 2004, when The Coalition was formed, our members have raised their voices and been heard. The Coalition led the way in 1) having students with 504 plans become eligible for the scholarship; 2) dissolving the payment for FLVS classes for McKay students; 3) developing a school-to-work transition plan. We are the only organization whose sole focus is the McKay Scholarship Program.
Joining us gives strength to your voice.
