In the 2007-08 school year, Utah spent $8,224 per public school student.
Charter schools are independent public schools run by parents or non-profits.
The average class size in Utah is 22.2
High school students can graduate with an associate's degree and a scholarship worth 75% of college tuition.
Dual enrollment allows home, charter, private, and online school students to participate in public school courses or extracurricular activities at their resident public school. With Dual Enrollment, parents have flexibility to select which public school classes, activities, or functions their child participates in.
Public school programs are funded through tax dollars. Private and home school students are responsible for student participation fees in the same manner as full-time public school students. Charter schools are responsible for the student participation fees for charter school students who participate in dual enrollment.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE
All home, charter, private, and online school students are eligible. However, home school and private school students are only eligible if they are taking courses comparable to traditional school courses or earning credit in at least as many of the designated courses as required by the local board of students for participation in that activity. Students may only participate in programs at their resident public school.
