EXCEPTIONAL EDUCATION FOR EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN
Special Needs Education Savings Account
North Carolina has long been a leader in educational options for families. Despite all of our accomplishments, from public charter school growth to scholarships for low-income families and children with disabilities – there is more that can be done! There are families who remain on the waitlist for the current Children with Disabilities Grant and even more students with disabilities who may need access to another option to meet their educational needs.
Exceptional Education for Exceptional Children is the grassroots campaign in support of North Carolina’s first ever Education Savings Account established during the 2017 Legislative Sesssion. The Special Needs ESA will provide financial resources to families with exceptional children of their own.
