EdChoice for All Ohioans

Call to Action The “Parent Educational Freedom Act” is in Ohio’s Senate Education Committee, and now is the time to let your voice be heard. Use this link from the Catholic Conference of Ohio to contact your Ohio Senator.

Brief Summary:

  • S.B. 11, the “Parent Educational Freedom Act,” calls for every Ohio student to be eligible for $5,500 for grades K-8, and $7,500 for grades 9-12, to be used at any chartered non-public school that accepts the EdChoice scholarships.
  • This enables the state’s education funding formula to support students where their parents want them to attend.
  • All local taxes still stay with the local public district, even if they have fewer students to educate. The scholarships are funded only by the state’s share of the funding formula, which is supported by all of our taxes.
  • The bill also increases the homeschooling expenses that a taxpayer can claim for an income tax credit from $250 to $2,000 a year.
  • See more information.

I would like to announce that our Business Manager, Mrs. Virginia Dedrick, has accepted a position for next school year and will be leaving SJJ at the end of this year. We will be working together to provide a smooth transition. We wish Mrs. Dedrick the best of luck in her new endeavor.
