ILSTO Informational School Representation Orientation Meetings


ilstoIowa Lutheran Student Tuition Organization (ILSTO) is Iowa’s answer to assisting students to attend the schools of their choice—not necessarily their local public schools. Your local Lutheran school provides just such a choice for church and community members. The LCMS schools of Iowa have come together to form this organization—a 501c(3) not-for-profit organization. Anyone who pays Iowa state income tax can donate and receive the tax benefits.

ILSTO is offering School Representation Program Orientation Meetings. This program is for Principals, ILSTO representatives from each school, pastors, interested congregation members, and school family members. It will provide greater awareness for ILSTO, how it works, and offer an opportunity for questions.
