The state of Florida offers the John McKay Scholarship program for students with disabilities. Under McKay, a student may be eligible to attend a different public school or a participating private school. The state will provide a scholarship for the student to attend a participating private school, another Okeechobee County public school, or a public school or charter school in a neighboring district if space is available for any Okeechobee County student who:
  • is currently enrolled in a public school,
  • was in attendance in a Florida public school in October and February during the funding counts and
  • has an active Individual Education Plan or 504 Plan.
