MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Sixty-eight private and religious schools throughout Wisconsin have registered to accept taxpayer subsidized voucher students next year.

The state Department of Public Instruction released the list of interested schools on Wednesday. The schools and school systems cover 120 buildings in 45 communities across the state. They also include the 25 schools or systems that were admitted into the program when it first expanded statewide last year.

This year enrollment was capped at 500 students. Next year 500 additional students will be allowed in, taken from the 25 schools with the most applicants if more than 1,000 apply.

The 68 applying schools is up from the 48 that applied last year.

All but three of the new applicants are religious schools.

Student applications are accepted through April 21.
