MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Wisconsin education officials say 241 private schools have signed up to participate in at least one of Wisconsin’s three voucher programs next school year.

State Department of Public Instruction officials said Tuesday that 163 schools registered to participate in the statewide program by the Jan. 10 deadline, including 11 schools that had previously participated in the Milwaukee or Racine voucher programs and 31 first-time applicant schools.

DPI officials said 127 schools registered to participate in the Milwaukee voucher program, including five new schools and one school currently participating in the Racine program.

Twenty-three schools registered to participate in the Racine program, including four new schools. One of those schools is currently in the statewide program.

Some schools are participating in more than one program.


This story has been updated to correct the number of schools participating in at least one voucher program.
