Budget Alert 2 (pdf)
The Governor’s Budget for Fiscal Year 2017 contained a 6.8% funding cut in nonpublic school programs. Specifically, the cuts were made in security (the total elimination of the Nonpublic School Security Program), nursing services, and technology. The per-pupil amount for nonpublic school transportation remained frozen at $884.00 – an amount that has been frozen for nine years. OUR POSITION: The New Jersey Catholic Conference and the New Jersey Network of Catholic School Families strongly support the restoration of funding for nonpublic school students and their families. We join with other nonpublic school constituencies in our concern that there is a lack of parity between nonpublic school accounts and public school accounts in the Governor’s Budget. We ask that between now and mid-June, all nonpublic school supporters reach out to members of the Legislature as noted in the Alert in order to remedy these inequities.
ACTION: Please enact the following steps in order to explain your position with regard to nonpublic school accounts: 1. Phone, email, or meet with the members of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and Assembly Budget Committee with regard to the concerns that you have with the Budget.
