Educational Credit for Exceptional Needs Children
The General Assembly in 2015 enacted within H.4230 (R.130) of the state budget a provision that further refines the Educational Credit for Exceptional Needs Children (ECENC).
The ECENC is separate and distinct from the enrollment of public school students with disabilities at a private school, which is governed by South Carolina State Board of Education regulation 43-243. Moreover, the ECENC explicitly forbids the "regulat[ion] of the educational program of an independent school that accept students receiving scholarship grants."
