Important Legislation to Help with Tuition:

Governor Cuomo and lawmakers are very close to approving legislation that would generate an additional $150 million in scholarships to help families pay tuition.  Unfortunately, lobbyists from the public schools teachers’ unions are vigorously opposing the legislation and are urging lawmakers to fund only public schools.  Tuition-paying families need and deserve their fair share.  
Without your help, this legislation may not be enacted!
Please take a moment to go to the NYS Catholic Conference website to easily and quickly send a message to the Governor and your elected legislators urging them to enact the Education Investment Tax Credit proposal.  Although the message is pre-written, feel free to edit it to reflect your particular needs and concerns.  By sending the message, you will also be given the opportunity to stay informed on this and other important efforts to help Catholic schools.

Thank you for doing your part to help get this important legislation enacted.

Rockville Centre—Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan  Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure (75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.In conformity with the IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.

Restore Catholic School Funding
Take Action Now
Because  the State Education Department changed the original Comprehensive  Attendance Policy (CAP)reimbursement formula, religious and independent  schools across the state are being cheated out of approximately $15 million.  During these final weeks of budget negotiations, lawmakers  have an opportunity to restore the original CAP formula, thereby  ensuring that Catholic schools are reimbursed for their actual costs in  complying with CAP.  Please email the Governor and your Senate and  Assembly representatives as soon as possible. A pre-written, fully  editable email is 
HERE. Just put in your address information to ensure it goes to your correct legislators.
