What does it mean to be a Partner School?

In order to become a partner school with AESOP, you will need to meet certain state requirements. Please review the following list carefully and contact us if you have any questions.

State Requirements

  1. You must be a qualified private school in the state of Arizona;
  2. You must charge tuition for all students (notwithstanding any other types of scholarships or discounts your school may offer);
  3. You must have regular classroom instruction that meets the state requirements for days per year;
  4. You cannot be a charter school or operated by a charter school;
  5. You must require all teaching staff/personnel that has unsupervised contact with students to be fingerprinted.

A 'Qualified School' means a nongovernmental primary or secondary school (private K-12) that does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability familial status or national origin (or a preschool that offers IEP services to students with disabilities).

What does the State mean by 'Kindergarten'?

In order for a student to be eligible for a scholarship based on the Private School Tuition Tax Credit Law, the child must be attending the Kindergarten that is just before 1st grade. K-4 or Pre-Kindergarten does not qualify. There are exceptions for handicapped children spelled out in A.R.S. 43-1601.

A taxpayer may not claim a tax credit if the taxpayer agrees to swap donations with another taxpayer to benefit either taxpayer’s own dependent.
