Welcome to ESA Allowable Items!
This searchable page is a tool for you to review allowable items that have been previously reviewed by the ESA Accounts Team. There are many more items and services not yet included that are allowable expenses. The Parent Handbook can offer guidance if you are interested in using ESA funds for an expense not listed below. We also have a PDF of all Allowable Items from Lakeshore Learning.
The Allowable Item list was updated for the 21/22 School Year to follow the 21/22 Parent Handbook. It also now lists all Disallowed purchases, which are also found in the Parent Handbook. A Disallowed Item may be approved for Students With Disabilities on the Program as an Associated Good -- with special education documentation such as a special education evaluation or letter from a special education professional that support the educational need for that item.
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,’ we will request a curriculum or course of study to be submitted with the item for approval.
Expense Category: How you would categorize the expense upon purchase.
Link: Click here to access more information about the expense.
To make a purchase in ClassWallet, you can check the Marketplace and its included vendors to see if they sell an item, and then purchase it through you ClassWallet account. If the items are not available through the ClassWallet Marketplace, you may make an out of pocket purchase and request reimbursement.
