The Fiscal Impact of a Tuition Assistance Grant on Virginia’s Special Education Students

A Tuition Assistance Grant (TAG) program would allow Virginia students with disabilities to attend the public or private school of their parents’ choice. But opponents attack this aid for disabled students, charging that it would drain public schools of funding. In fact, however, this study demonstrates that local school systems would receive a fiscal windfall — receiving from each TAG Grant a net fiscal benefit of more than $5,200 per child from revenue sources that would remain with the system, and benefitting from a savings of more than 6,700 per child through reduced special education costs.
