Senate Bill 68: An Act Regarding Eligibility Criterion for the South Carolina LIFE Scholarship
This bill would have amended the statutory provisions for class ranking as a criterion for homeschool students to be eligible for a LIFE Scholarship. Current law requires students to meet two out of three criteria in order to be eligible for a LIFE Scholarship. In addition to class ranking, the other criteria are an acceptable score on the SAT or ACT and required grade point average. This bill would have entitled class ranking of homeschool students to be determined by a homeschool association of which the student is a member. Students not complying with the homeschool law by membership in an association but by approval of their school district would have to have met the grade point and test score requirements to be eligible for the scholarship.
