Welcome to ESA Allowable Items!
This searchable page is a tool that enables you to review allowable items that have been previously approved by the ESA Accounts Team. Keep in mind, that this list is not exhaustive, there are many other educational items that are allowed. Addtionally, the items listed are not endorsed by ADE and are listed for the convenience of ESA families as examples of items that have been approved.
The ESA Parent Handbook can offer guidance if you are interested in using ESA funds for an item that is not listed.
Keep in mind that a "disallowed" item may be approved for eligible Students With Disabilities. Learn more about these items, "Associated Goods and Assistive Technology", as well as what documentation is necessary, on page 18 of the ESA Parent Handbook.
Expense: Enter the name and/or description of the item you may purchase with ESA funds. The search bar will populate suggestions as you begin typing.
Determination: If the expense is listed as ‘Approved’, that means it can be purchased. If the expense is listed as ‘Approved with curriculum or course of study, please submit a curriculum or course of study along with the item for approval.
