Ongoing Advocacy

Tax Credit Scholarship Programs

Teach Florida supports this year’s proposed expansion of the tax credit scholarship program for low-income students and the Gardiner and McKay scholarships for special needs children. 2,743 Jewish students are currently attending Jewish day schools and yeshivas on these programs, out of 136,879 total Florida scholarship students.


Teach Florida works with schools to maximize all available funding and increase funding levels for security.

Maximize Government Funding

Teach Florida helps schools navigate government programs and applications to make sure they receive the funds they are due. Our staff meets with school administrators and boards to review programs. Our goal is to make sure our schools receive the federal, state and local funds available to them.
