As head of CCI's Education Department, Zach Wichmann writes an occasional newsletter on education issues pending at the state and federal level and their impact on Catholic schools.
This is the first newsletter since the end-of-session report was issued in early June. We review the major pieces of education legislation that were passed during the spring session, and remind you of some important administrative deadlines coming up this fall. Read all about it in the October 2014 Education Newsletter.
The spring 2014 legislative session ended on May 31, with education funding for the next fiscal year remaining flat. But how did other education initiatives fare? Read our May-June Education Newsletter to find out.
The deadline to get bills through committees just passed, so we now have a better idea of which education bills have a chance to get a vote on the floor. Read our March 2014 Education Newsletter to find out which pieces of legislation are still alive.
The deadline for the introduction of new bills for the spring legislative session was Feb. 14, so we've sifted through the new legislation for measures that would impact our Catholic schools. We break down the new initiatives in our February 2014 newsletter into three categories: appropriations, regulation, and school choice. We'll also keep you updated throughout the session on the progress of these bills.
