Education Improvement Scholarships Tax Credits. Eliminates the requirement that schools with students who receive scholarships from tax-credit-derived sources report achievement test results to the Department of Education, and that the Department of Education publish aggregated data about such students and their test results on the Department's website. Instead, the schools will be required to report achievement test results to the foundation awarding the scholarship to the student. The bill also clarifies that a scholarship foundation meets the requirement that it was established to provide financial aid for the education of students residing in the Commonwealth if the foundation's articles of incorporation or bylaws so state.
