Is the LEEP program still funded under the Education budget?

LEEP stands for the Lutheran Elementary Education Partnership Program and provides supplemental support to POP families. LEEP is designed to support and advocate for Lutheran education and to provide an alternative to the public school system in our communities. If a family attends a church with a school, the tuition is handled much like if you were attending a state college. If you attend a different church but a child attends the school the cost is greater. The LEEP program does not pay the total tuition but bridges the cost difference between those distinctions. LEEP has been a part of our planning for years and 2017 represents no change from 2016 planning which was actually our lowest budgeted and spend year since 2011.
