MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Forty eight private and religious schools currently operating in 39 Wisconsin communities have registered to be a part of the state's newly expanded voucher program.

The state Department of Public Instruction released the list of the interested schools on Wednesday.

The 48 schools run 90 buildings statewide.

The most interest came from Green Bay, with six schools operating out of there and neighboring De Pere registering. The second highest interest came from Sheboygan, where four schools registered.

No more than 500 students can be in the program next year. Only the 25 schools that receive the most applicants can participate.

Parents who wish to enroll their children in the program can submit applications online starting Thursday through 4 p.m. on Aug. 9.
