State officials say they have cut off voucher payments to 41 private schools that failed to provide required information.
More than 300 children have been attending those schools on vouchers. This week the state notified their parents they can enroll at another school or work out other arrangements to stay where they are.
A spokeswoman for the state's Department of Education says the schools must show they're complying with laws before the state will send any more payments.
Ten schools told the state they no longer want to participate in voucher programs. But schools that want to continue to accept voucher students can get their payments restored by returning the state's compliance form by Nov. 21 and being in compliance by Dec. 15.
