Pursuant to ODOT-TSO’s Oregon Administrative Rule 737-015-0105 (1) - Income Based Subsidy for Approved Courses, TSO is adopting the Oregon Board of Education definition of “economically disadvantaged student” as the qualifier for the Free & Reduced Subsidy for ODOT-Approved Driver Education. Oregon’s State Board of Education definition is posted below:

Oregon Dept of Education Chapter 581, Division 14 -
Student Investment Account

581-014-0001 Definitions for Student Investment Account

The following definitions apply to OAR 581-014-0001 to 581-014-9999.

     (14) Effective July 1, 2023, "Economically disadvantaged students" means students who meet one or more of the following qualifications:

           (a) are participating in a Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program funded by the United States Department of Agriculture;

           (b) are participating in the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program as defined in the Title IV of the Social Security Act;

           (c) are foster students;

           (d) are migrant students; or​

           (e) are students who are homeless.​

Students who meet any of the definitions listed above will qualify for the Free & Reduced Subsidy for ODOT Approved Driver Education. Providers must see proof of eligibility from the family (not the school districts.)
