The New Jersey Catholic Conference and the New Jersey Network of Catholic School Families are asking for the following specific increases in the Fiscal Year 2020 Education Budget.
- An increase from $1,000.00 to $1,040.00 for the per-pupil ceiling for nonpublic school transportation in order to provide opportunities for students to receive rides to school.
- An increase from $97.00 per pupil to $125.00 per pupil for nonpublic school nursing services to provide additional hours for nurses in nonpublic schools and to cover the needs specified by recent legislation with respect to the requirements for improved student health.
- An increase in the funding for Compensatory Education (remedial Reading, Mathematics, and Language Arts) from $995.33 to $1,100.00. The former figure is in Budget language and limits service providers to that amount.
