The Indiana Non-Public Education Association (INPEA) is hosting a legislative engagement training meeting at the Indiana District office downtown Fort Wayne on November 17th from 6-7:30 PM. Come learn more about how to help the non-public school voice be heard. The event is open to anyone interested in connecting our parents and community with the upcoming legislative session in the new year. We invite anyone to attend this event, including pastors, administrators, student council/board members, and parents.

November 17th, 2016 – Fort Wayne

We encourage all Lutheran schools to have at least one representative at this training because school choice legislation has had an impact on each of our Lutheran schools. For example:

  • 15 of our 18 schools are benefiting from students in our schools receiving school choice scholarships (voucher).
  • 40% of our region’s enrolled students are receiving a school choice scholarship (voucher).
  • All schools in The Lutheran Schools Partnership (TLSP) are members of the Lutheran Scholarship Granting Organization of Indiana (LSGOI)
  • Through school choice scholarships and/or donor tax credits, all TLSP schools are benefiting from the school choice program.

 

One more thought – does your school have a legislative liaison? Legislative liaisons are INPEA’s first stop for sharing important legislative information and asking for communication help. Make sure INPEA has the name and contact information for your school’s liaison. Email the information to Andrea Zimmerman at azimmerman@inpea.org
