Hooray! The PA House Passes HB 2370

We are thrilled that the Pennsylvania House has passed HB 2370, taking a crucial first step toward securing constitutional public school funding. This is a significant victory for education in our state. You can find a summary of the bill here.

Next Steps: Get the PA Senate on Board

Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 12th! 

It takes just 10 calls in one day to one legislator for them to mark an issue as important. We are organizing a statewide call to action day, and we need your help. Here’s how you can participate:

1) Look up your senator’s phone number here.
2) Mark your calendar and make a plan to call them on June 12th and join us in urging our senators to support HB 2370!

You’ll be asking your lawmakers to:
– Support the proposed $1.8 billion increase in public education funding in the 2024-2025 state budget.
– Support a seven-year plan for funding public schools that will bring Pennsylvania into constitutional compliance.
– Support cyber charter reforms that will align tuition payments to cyber charters with their actual costs.

Don’t want to forget? Sign up here for a reminder to participate in the PA Schools Work Call to Action Day for Education. By signing up, you’ll receive an email from us on the day of the event reminding you to make your call and make your voice heard.

Learn how your school district would benefit from the
seven-year public school funding plan.

There’s a reason this budget is so important! The seven-year public school funding plan is designed to provide equitable resources to all school districts across Pennsylvania, ensuring every student has access to a quality education. You can learn about how your district would benefit by checking out our funding fact sheets here.

**Please note that cyber savings proposed in HB 2370 are greater than those in Gov. Shapiro’s proposal, which is what is on the PASW fact sheets. We anticipate these fact sheets being updated soon.**
