Green Bay schools begin voucher process

Some private and parochial schools in the Green Bay area are laying groundwork to apply to be part of the expanded state school voucher program.

The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction released guidelines this week for schools and school systems to apply to be part of the program. Schools have until July 26 to apply.

The DPI expects to release information for individual families soon. That application deadline is Aug. 9.

The program will accept 250 students to the top 25 schools that apply to be part of the program, so each would see 10 voucher students, according to the Rev. Dane Radecki, president of the Green Bay Area Catholic Education system. The remaining 250 students will be chosen by lottery throughout the entire state.

The local Catholic system, also known as GRACE, will apply as a single entity rather than nine individual schools, Radecki said. That's because the system functions as a single financial group, he said.
