Governor Cuomo assured us he would fight to enact the Education Investment Tax Credit which is designed to generate desperately needed scholarships for tuition-paying families as well as additional funding to public schools. The measure is strongly supported by the vast majority of legislators. Now we need Governor Cuomo to lead on the issue. As the governor prepares his Executive Budget, it's critical that you contact the Governor immediately and urge him to include the Education Investment Tax Credit.  Action Alert

OFFICIAL NOTICE: Rockville Centre - Ursuline Sister Joanne Callahan, Diocesan Superintendent of Schools, is recognized as an official with authority to respond to Revenue Procedure (75-50) which was published in the Internal Revenue Bulletin dated December 8, 1975.  In conformity with IRS regulation, notice is hereby given that the schools of the Diocese of Rockville Centre admit students of any race to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the schools and that the schools do not discriminate on the basis of race in administration of their education policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.  Sister Joanne further explained that the very notion of racial discrimination is diametrically opposed to the concept of Christian communities that our schools strive to be.  She also pointed out that our Catholic schools have always welcomed and have been enriched by students from various ethnic groups.
