Fight the Cut in Aid to Catholic Schools


For four decades, New York State has reimbursed Catholic and other nonpublic schools for “mandated services.” This has nothing to do with curriculum. Instead, it covers such state requirements as safety standards, state test proctoring and reporting, etc. Now the state is changing the formula for calculating reimbursements in a way that will mean cuts to our schools, even as publics and charters get ever more money. Take action below by sending the prewritten email message or tweet to your elected officials rejecting cuts for mandated services reimbursement.

I was notified by the Superintendent of the Brooklyn Diocese, Dr. Chadzutko, that St. Rose of Lima Catholic Academy was awarded an $85,000 grant to have a fulyl operational STEM Lab installed by LABLEARNER for the coming 2017-2018 school year.  This shows great faith in our academy and staff.  We feel very honored to be chosen for this opportunity.  We will be committed to the training and to giving your children the opportunity to be on the cutting edge of Science, Technology, Engineering, Math!!
