Welcome New Jersey Schools
Unfortunately, the state funding that supports Learning Ally Governor’s Literacy Initiative Program is suspended, indefinitely, as the result of Governor Murphy’s decision to include this funding in his reserved appropriations. We are continuing to work to change this decision and have emphasized the long successful record of the program (16 years), the critical need it fills for at-risk special education students, and the urgency of securing funding for the beginning of the school year. To date we remain in this limbo.
We encourage you to contact the Governor’s office directly at 609-292-6000 to convey to his administration the value and need for this program to be restored quickly.
Additionally, we recommend contacting education commissioner Dr. Lamont Repollet’s office at 609-376-3700 as well with the same message.
We do not know when or if this will be resolved. As developments occur we will keep you informed.
