Education improvement scholarships tax credit; eligibility requirements. Eliminates the requirement that a student currently or recently have attended public school in order to qualify for a scholarship from a scholarship foundation that provides tax-credit-derived scholarships. The bill increases the maximum annual scholarship amount from 100 percent of the per pupil amount distributed to the local school division as its share of standards of quality costs (i) for a student with a disability, to 400 percent of such amount and (ii) for a student who has an autism spectrum disorder, to $26,000. The bill adds to the definition of "qualified educational expenses" expenditures made in connection to summer education. Amends § 58.1-439.25, § 58.1-439.28, of the Code of Virginia.
