Mueller's message

posted Apr 6, 2016, 6:03 AM by Trinity Lutheran

Dear Families of Trinity Lutheran School,

      We have people lobbying on our behalf with Iowa’s State House of Representatives to pass a bill that would create Education Savings Accounts (ESA’s) for all students in Iowa.  Essentially, this would establish a set amount of money ($5000+) for each student to use for educational purposes including tuition.

      The first proposed step includes establishing an ESA pilot program.

      This affects your family directly; if we do get ESA’s in Iowa, this will be money that can be used for your tuition here at Trinity.  A five minute investment of your time right now could pay off in dollars in a few years.  Please take a moment to contact your representative now!  (See below.)

      Thinking of you.  Thinking of our school.

 Sincerely,

 Mark Mueller

Principal

 

 Yesterday, the subcommittee on HF2284 passed the bill on to the full appropriations committee for consideration.  This bill, as written, would create an Education Savings Account (ESA) pilot program in the Sioux Center and Waterloo school districts.  Although details wills certainly change moving forward, we are hopeful that the full appropriations committee will take the bill up soon and send it to the floor for debate by the whole House of Representatives.
