I totally understand wanting to keep kids at home this fall! I’m worried about my son in a school with 3000+ people! But PLEASE remember that next year’s funding is based on how many kids are officially part of the count THIS fall. This is probably part of UCP’s plan. #ableg
UCP is counting on parents homeschooling in the fall.
On Global yesterday, in response to a question about parents concerns with their plan, Kenney said, “We also have the most generous rules to support homeschoolers—people who decide to educate their kids at home... #ableg 2/8
There is funding available for that, for costs related to it, as part of our approach to school choice. So those are options that exist.” 3/8 #ableg #abed Image
Please be aware that next year’s (2021-2022) funding will be based in part on how many students are registered and counted at their schools THIS fall. They do two counts in September. 4/8 #ableg #abed
If you keep your child home and don’t register them, if they go back later in the school year (after Sept.30), the school gets NO funding for your child for the remainder of the school year, and will also have less next year, based on this new ‘rolling average’

This is what UCP wants. They don’t actually care about your children or how they are educated. They have found a loophole to potentially hugely underfund schools where kids would be going, if not for Covid-19. 6/8 #ableg #abed
If you are worried enough about UCP’s poorly conceived plan that you want to keep your kids at home, please be sure they are still registered and counted at the school they would normally attend. 7/8 #ableg #abed
Full Kenney interview is on Global and school remarks are at about 11:40. He also, in response to the concerns about no funding to implement their ‘plan’, said “Money doesn’t grow on trees.” That’s how much he cares about your kids or mine. 8/8 #ableg #abed
