As a private school participating in the Private School Choice Programs, the school is allowed to obtain your prior year tax return, or W-2(s) to determine which income category you are in. What this means is if your family income qualifies for the *Choice Program you are applying to, but exceeds 220% the federal poverty level, schools are permitted to charge tuition per state law in addition to the voucher amount the school receives. This is called Category 2 tuition.
