Individualized Education Account Program

The Individualized Education Act, adopted by the Tennessee General Assembly in 2015 (Public Chapter 431), creates the Individualized Education Account Program and related accounts (IEAs) for eligible students with disabilities to use for educational purposes. The program provides options for parents and students to choose the education opportunities that best meet their unique needs through access to public education funds. As of January 2022, the following Memphis-area IEA participants are Evangelical Christian School, Holy Rosary Catholic School, Madonna Learning Center, Sensational Enlightenment Academy, St. Benedict at Auburndale High School, and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic School.

For more information or to find out if you qualify, visit the TN Department of Education website. You might also find this summary from the American Federation for Children helpful.

Note: A child must have attended a Tennessee public school for at least two semesters preceding the semester in which the student receives an IEA or be enrolling in a Tennessee school for the first time.
