NJ BUDGET UPDATE: We still need your support!
Your Voice Matters to the Future of Catholic School Students
To All School Families:
South Jersey Catholic Schools Lead the Way
As of April 28, families in the Diocese of Camden have contacted New Jersey legislators more than all other dioceses combined, using the link to
. What a great reflection on our schools
With the final budget determination due in June, there is still work to be done. May is a critical month for reaching out to legislators about funding for non-public school students in New Jersey. If you've made your voice heard, thank you. If you haven't, Voter Voice makes it easy for you to contact legislators via email.
An even more effective way to be heard is to reach out directly, via phone or email, to local legislators who are involved with the budget. (See "What can you do?" below.)
Invite others to speak out
Do you have parents, friends or extended family members living in New Jersey? What about your neighbors? Share the Voter Voice link and ask them to request equitable allocation of funds to provide basic services for all students. Take it a step further and ask them to contact key legislators directly. Remind them that every Catholic school student saves taxpayers an average $19,000, the cost to educate a child in a New Jersey public school.
Below is a re-posting of the issues and ways you can help.
Did you know?
- Governor Christie has proposed flat or reduced funding for non-public school students in the 2017-18 school year. The final budget will be approved in late June.
- In his plan, the per-student allotment for bus transportation will remain $884 - an amount that has not changed in 10 years.
- Funding for school nurses and technology will be reduced, and funding for non-public school security will be eliminated altogether.
What can you do?
- Be informed. For more information, read the Action Alert and talking points from the New Jersey Catholic Conference.
- Be heard. Through Voter Voice, ask your representatives to reach out to their counterparts who serve on the Budget and Appropriations committees.
With language from
, you can also reach out directly to the three individuals who will make budget recommendations. Urge them to fight for our school
Senator Nilsa Cruz-Perez
(Camden County and Gloucester County residents)
Senator Jeff Van Drew
(Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland County residents)
Assemblyman John J. Burzichelli
(Salem and Gloucester County residents)
Now is the time when committee representatives are preparing to make recommendations for the final budget vote in June.
Now is the time to fight for fair distribution of funds for expenses that affect children at all schools. Public school students never have to leave a school because they can't get a bus ride. This is the most important issue on the table, even for families who don't need busing services. Our schools cannot thrive if students are unable to get there.
Remember, every Catholic school student saves taxpayers an average $19,000.
Our children deserve basic services no matter where they go to school. On behalf of your children, and all Catholic school children, thank you for making sure your voice is heard.

ectional Finals on Friday.
