Please join us for our first event in Livingston on October 31. We will be joined by Jeremy Halpern of Kushner Academy, Sam Moed who serves as the Chairman of Teach NJS and Cheryl Weiner Rosenberg who serves on the Englewood Council and on the Executive Committee for Teach NJS. We will discuss how voting in your local elections directly impacts the cost of your tuition bill so our children receive fair funding including security funding. In this fiscal year, Trenton allocated only $75 per pupil in security funding for our children, while public school students received over $200. Kindly RSVP to Jackie Yehudiel, Teach NJS Director, at email@example.com

Two years ago Governor Christie signed into law the “Safe Schools for All Children Act” which provides security funding for all nonpublic schools. True parity for all students, based on funding provided to public school students, would be $190.
Currently nonpublic schools receive $75 per student for security aid. We are asking that the level be increased to a minimum of $190 per student.
CURRENT: $75 ASKING FOR: $205
Technology funding has shown no significant increase, rather it has decreased from the $40 per student level it was at until 2008.
Currently nonpublic schools receive $37 per student for technology aid. We are asking that the level be increased to a minimum of $146 per student.
CURRENT: $36 ASKING FOR: $146
Similar to security funding, health care should also be universal for all students. However, nonpublic schools must provide supplemental funds to hire full time nurses due to the insufficient state funding that they receive. This year $97 per student is allocated for nursing aid— far below the amount needed to provide adequate nursing services.
Currently nonpublic schools receive $97 per student for nursing aid. We are asking that the level be increased to a minimum of $150 per student to offset the steep costs that nonpublic schools must incur.
CURRENT: $97 ASKING FOR: $150
The statute on textbook funding calls for an equal allocation for all students, public and nonpublic. We would like to see the full amount appropriated for textbook aid.
Currently nonpublic schools receive $55 per student for textbooks . We are asking that the level be increased to a minimum of $60 per student.
CURRENT: $55 ASKING FOR: $60
