All proceeds benefit the Assumption Regional Catholic School Annual Fund. The ARCS Annual Fund gives parents, faculty, staff, graduates, parishioners and friends of our community the opportunity to invest in every aspect of our school.  Because tuition does not fully fund the cost of an ARCS education, we need the support of the entire ARCS family to help ensure we continue to provide our students with an outstanding Catholic elementary school experience and provide a Catholic education to every family who desires it for their child. The 100% tax deductible commitment to the Annual Fund enhances the educational opportunities we provide today’s students who will be tomorrow’s graduates.

New Jersey Catholic Conference Faith in Action – Voter Voice system

ISSUES:

PRIORITY #1 – Nonpublic school transportation.  The ceiling for nonpublic school transportation has been frozen at $884.00 since the 2007-2008 school year.  This situation means that districts and/or private bus operators cannot bid routes at beyond $884.00 per pupil.  Please note the enclosed Talking Points for discussing nonpublic school busing with legislators and other interested individuals.

 

PRIORITY #2 – Governor Christie’s proposed 2018 Budget cut $9 million from nonpublic school aid reducing if from $95.5 million to $86.5 million.  Included in the cuts were the elimination of the entire Nonpublic School Security Program which had been funded at $50.00 per student and the elimination of increases in nonpublic school nursing services and technology aid.  Please note the enclosed talking points for discussing these accounts with legislators and other interested individuals.

 

OUR               The New Jersey Catholic Conference and the New Jersey Network of Catholic School

POSITION:   Families seek:

  1. To increase the $884.00 by moving funds currently in the Fiscal Year 2018 Governor’s Budget. This is the major issue for the Catholic schools.
  1. To restore the $9 million removed from the nonpublic school accounts in the Governor’s Budget at least to the level of funding in the Fiscal Year 2017 Appropriations Act.

ACTION TO BE TAKEN: 

  1. Call, write, or email the members of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and the Assembly Budget Committee (see enclosed list) and ask them to increase the $884.00 to compensate for the Consumer Price Index (CPI) increases over the last 11 years. If your district does not have legislators on either of the Committees, call, write, or email your legislator and ask that they speak with members of those two committees in order to increase the funding.  This task could be accomplished by shifting funds in the current Governor’s Budget without increasing the overall budget.
  2. Call, write, or email the members of the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee and the Assembly Budget Committee (c.f. enclosed list) and ask them to restore the cuts in nursing, technology, and security for the 2017-2018 school year. If your district does not have legislators on either of the Committees, call, write, or email your legislator and ask that they speak with members of those two committees in order to restore this aid.

THIS IS NOT A ONE AND DONE CAMPAIGN.  WE WILL NEED TO FOLLOW-UP A NUMBER OF TIMES OVER THE NEXT THREE MONTHS IN ORDER THAT THE ISSUES REMAIN A PRIORITY IN THE MINDS OF THE LEGISLATORS.
