Scores of local parents are elated about state lawmakers’ recent decision to begin partially subsidizing private schooling in Nevada.

Legislators passed a bill this spring that allows parents to put the money the state normally would pay a school to educate a child — about $5,000 — toward private school tuition instead.

The details still are being worked out, but the measure opens up the possibility of private schooling to many families that otherwise never would dream of being able to afford it.

At some schools, the $5,000 or so paid by the state virtually covers a child’s entire tuition. In other cases, the funding is barely a drop in the bucket.

Here is an overview of what it costs to send a child to private school in the valley.
