The application period is open until February 28. Parents can enroll at the vochure school or online at www.doe.louisiana.gov.
Last year, more than 12,000 students across the state applied for the scholarships. According to the state Department of Education, 136 schools are participating in the voucher program this year.
Private and parochial schools have one year to make a difference.
