Current Advocacy

Fighting for $150 per Student Parity Funding

Teach NJS is fighting for parity in nursing, technology, security, and textbooks by asking the legislature for a minimum of $150 per nonpublic school student . At this funding level, there would be one full-time nurse per school, along with meaningful increases in security, technology and textbook support.

Ongoing Advocacy

Textbook Aid

New Jersey state law calls for equal textbook funding for all students – nonpublic and public – but nonpublic students receive less because the statute is not fully funded in the budget.

Maximize Government Funding

Teach NJS helps schools navigate government programs and applications to make sure they receive the funds they are due. Our staff meets with school administrators and boards to review programs.
