Educational Savings Accounts

Immediate assistance is needed with offering support for Senate File 240 which would provide an Educational Savings Account for students attending our Catholic Schools. If passed, each of our students would get the per-pupil state foundation aid of $5,600 to apply towards tuition. There are plans for an ESA subcommittee meeting on Tuesday, March 3rd in Des Moines, so your immediate emails and phone calls to legislators are very important. 

You can contact your legislators at: 

The specific bill can be found at:  Senate File 240 

Thank you for giving your immediate attention to this very important issue for our schools!
