Special Report:
Resources for Your Children’s Education

Whether pre-K, pre-teen (like mine!) or pre-college, Alex and I wish your children a most successful school year!

 


New State Rules: Children must be Vaccinated by Fifth Day of School this Fall
The Pennsylvania Department of Health reminds parents to ensure their children are up-to-date on vaccines.

Under new rules adopted last year, children must be fully immunized prior to the fifth day of school or the students will be excluded from school.

For a student in the middle of an immunization series, parents must provide the school nurse with a written plan for completing the shots, signed by their health care provider, within the first five days of school.

For more information, contact your health care provider, visit health.pa.gov or call 1-877-PA-HEALTH.
 

Be Smart About Student Loans
 
The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA) is encouraging college students and their families to visit MySmartBorrowing.org to help make informed choices about student loans.

This free, easy-to-use tool helps users understand how different career, school and financial decisions can influence the cost of an education and their ability to repay student loans, while maintaining a comfortable lifestyle long after graduation.

The site was recently updated with enhanced college and career projection data through 2026. This includes expected college costs for various majors at different schools and future employment opportunities and salary levels for different careers and geographic locations.

This data helps provide a personalized look at a student’s potential cost of attendance at an array of schools, while highlighting salary expectations for a particular degree and future employment prospects. Students are encouraged to use the site more than once so they can compare various scenarios, using different schools and careers, to see how the choices they make can affect their futures.

For more information about financial aid opportunities, visit PHEAA.org.
  

Save for College with tax-free State 529 Plan
For families planning for higher education, the Pennsylvania Treasury offers the PA 529 Guaranteed Savings Plan (GSP), in which growth is tied to the rate of college tuition inflation, and the PA 529 Investment Plan (IP), which offers 15 investment options by The Vanguard Group.

Contributions to PA 529 plans are deductible from Pennsylvania income taxes, grow tax free, and, when used for qualified educational expenses, are federal and state tax exempt. Both plans provide flexibility to pay for higher education expenses at most higher education institutions across the country. The PA 529 GSP is designed to enable your savings to help keep pace with the rising costs of higher education. The PA 529 GSP contributions grow at the rate of tuition inflation but are subject to fees and premiums.

The PA 529 Guaranteed Savings Plan (GSP) is offering free enrollment – a $50 savings – for all new accounts opened before Aug. 31, at PA529.com. Use code “SUMMERGSP” when prompted.

The PA 529 Investment Plan (IP) features low fees and more than a dozen conservative and aggressive investment options. No enrollment fee is charged for the PA 529 IP.
