In 2018, the state of Florida established Reading Scholarship Accounts to provide supports for public school students in grades 3-5 who struggle with reading. Students who received a Florida State Assessment (FSA) Score of Level 1 in English Language Arts (ELA) automatically qualify for the scholarship.
 The state program provides families with access to education savings accounts, worth $500 to pay for tuition and fees associated with part-time tutoring in reading, in summer and after school programs designed to improve reading and literacy skills through instructional materials and curriculum aligned to grade-level literacy standards. Scholarships are limited and offered on a first come first serve basis, the application window opens August 13th.
