** ACTION ALERTS **

Action Alert: Funding for Chapter 192 (Comp. Ed.)

The New Jersey Catholic Conference has issued an Action Alert regarding the level of funding for Chapter 192 in the State Budget. Chapter 192 (Compensatory Education) provides remedial instruction in Reading, Language Arts, and Mathematics for students in nonpublic schools. However, it has been over 10 years since the program has received a statutory increase in funding and services have been reduced as a result. Please contact the office of Governor Murphy and urge him to increase funding for Chapter 192 in order to remediate children in compensatory education and to increase their success for the future.

Action Alert: Funding for Nonpublic School Transportation

The New Jersey Catholic Conference has issued an Action Alert regarding the level of funding for nonpublic school transportation in the State Budget. Nonpublic school transportation continues to be problematic for many students with the result being that parents receive aid-in-lieu payments instead of transportation. Parent’s aid-in-lieu does not help in getting their children to and from a nonpublic school because many parents have no alternative other than busing. Please contact the office of Governor Murphy and urge him to increase the statutory ceiling for nonpublic school transportation to at least $1,050 per pupil in order to have transportation routes run for our students.
