No, there is no deduction for K-12 schools on the Federal return.

However, the TCJA did change that Qualified Tuition Plans ("529 Plans") can now be used for K-12 private schools, so that is probably what you 'heard'.  So if the taxpayer has contribute to a 529 plan, it can be withdrawn for K-12 private school tuition.
