FY2018 Budget/ CR - Title IIA - Professional Development $$
The USCCB signed on to this
from the Council for American Private Education requesting full funding of Title IIA in the FY2018 budget.
You will recall that the private school community fought very hard - and successfully - in the last re-authorization to ensure that the equitable share of funds set aside for II-A services to private school teachers be based on the district's total allocation. Now the House wants to eliminate funding for Title II-A, while the Senate (at the committee level) has approved level funding for the program at $2 billion. We support the Senate on this. CAPE also set up
this action alert
that you and your constituents can use to call on Congress to provide $2 billion for Title II-A.
We will continue to watch this process and keep you updated.
