A FEW MORE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR P-T CONFERENCE DINNERS!
EDUCATE YOURSELF – FAQ’s ABOUT WISCONSIN PARENTAL CHOICE PROGRAM
At our open forum, comments were raised about curriculum:
- How much does the voucher cover for each student?
For the 2018 – 2019 school year, the vouchers will be $7,750/student.
- Will our school need to modify its curriculum because we teach God’s word?
Absolutely not! In fact, our curriculum is protected by state law. Statute 118.165 - “This subsection does not require the program to include in its curriculum any concept, topic or practice in conflict with the program’s religious doctrines or to exclude from its curriculum any concept, topic or practice consistent with the programs….” Every WELS grade school we have talked to have found the WPCP to be a great opportunity to share God’s word with others. Many schools have stories of how their ministry has changed the lives of students and their families.
Please talk to any committee members and share your questions, comments and concerns. You can get contact info through the school office.
The next WPCP Forum will be Sunday, November 19th at Noon in the Fellowship Hall.
