Welcome to Norfolk Catholic School

Norfolk Catholic School offers instruction for Pre-K through 12th Grade and operates under the auspices of Sacred Heard Parish within the Archdiocese of Omaha, Nebraska. The Elementary and High School buildings are located on one central campus on West Madison Avenue.  Norfolk Catholic School was established in 1926 initially offering only Grades 1 through 8 and eventually expanded to serve the growing educational and spiritual needs of the parish.  Today, Norfolk Catholic School serves a student population of approximately 600.  The school’s mission is to enable students to live their Catholic Faith and to achieve academic success. The school community is an integral part of the Catholic Church’s mission to proclaim the gospel, build faith communities, offer service to others and the celebrate through worship.  The school’s Catholic identity is strengthened by an integrated curriculum rooted in Gospel values and teachings. A positive school climate is established through the creation of a Christian environment that actively involves students, teacher, parents and community members in recognizing and respecting individual differences.

LB 26
Choice for the Advancement of Nebraska Children in Education Act
Give Nebraska's Kids a
CHANCE 

This legislation would provide a 60 percent tax credit to taxpayers who fund scholarships for students to attend a private school.  The donations would be made to non-profit organizations accredited by the state that dedicate at least 90 percent of their revenue to scholarship grants. 
The maximum amount of aggregate tax credits per year allowed at the beginning of the program would be $10 million.  In order to reach this maximum in a given year, donors would have to give a total of $16.7 million, which would translate into over $15 million for scholarship funds (minus an allowance of 10% for the scholarship granting organizations' administrative costs).
Students eligible to receive a scholarship would have to live in a household with income not more than two times the reduced price meal cost of the federal school meal program (currently about $88,000 for a household of four).  First-time applicants would also have to be transferring to a private school from any grade in a public school, be entering kindergarten or ninth grade of a private school, or be the sibling of a current scholarship recipient.  A private school could accept scholarship recipients if it is approved or accredited by the state of Nebraska. 
Nebraska currently is one of only seven states in the U.S. that does not provide its elementary and secondary school students with government-supported options for a non-public education.  As a Catholic school parent, you know first-hand the importance of having this option and the positive difference that it can make in the lives of a child.  LB 26 would increase the availability of a Catholic or other non-public education for children from low- and middle-income families.
Your senator, as a member of the Revenue Committee, will be deciding within the next few days whether to support LB 26 and vote to advance it for consideration by the entire legislature. Please give Nebraska's children a CHANCE by contacting your senator, either by phone or e-mail, with the message indicated.
Senator Jim Scheer      E-mail: jscheer@leg.ne.gov        Phone: 402-471-2929 
Message: "Please support LB 26 and vote to advance it out of committee."
If you call your senator's office after-hours and reach his or her voicemail, feel free to leave a message with your name, town, and the above message. 
If you would like additional information, a copy of LB 26, a section-by-section summary, and a Q and A explanation of the bill are available online at www.necatholic.org.
