The STO is a charitable organization that receives voluntary cash contributions from Iowa taxpayers and allocates those funds in tuition grants to Iowa school children, who in turn use those grants to attend one of the accredited non-public schools represented by the STO. At least ninety percent (90%) of the money received by an STO must go back out in tuition grants.
STO tuition grants benefit students living in households with income that does not exceed an amount equal to three times the federal poverty guidelines for their family size.
The tuition grants created by the STO program will be a choice to those families who would have otherwise been unable to choose private education.
