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. Thanks for taking action on this important issue of fairness for our Catholic schools.
