    Act now to take advantage of the recent changes to Public Service Loan Forgiveness.

    Long-time PAMLE corporate supporter and sponsor of the PA Schools to Watch program,  Horace Mann, wants to help ensure you’re aware of the recent changes to Public Service Loan Forgiveness.

    On Oct. 6, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education announced a change to PSLF program rules for a limited time due to the COVID-19 national emergency. From now until Oct. 31, 2022, you may receive credit for past payments made on loans that would otherwise not qualify for PSLF.

    What this means:

    Any prior loan payments made while working full time for a qualifying employer (such as a public school) will count as a qualifying PSLF payment, regardless of loan type, repayment plan, or whether the payment was made in full or on time. Private loans and Parent PLUS loans do not qualify.

    What next:

    This opportunity is only available until Oct. 31, 2022 so act now to take advantage. Not sure where to start? Horace Mann’s Student Loan Solutions program can give you the resources, tools and guidance to help you navigate these changes all in one place.

    Dear Pennsylvania Educators,

    The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is excited to announce the 2022 Radon Poster Contest for students. Students ages 9-14 years old as of November 30 are encouraged to combine science and art by creating an educational poster that shows the physical aspects of radon, the harmful effects of indoor radon gas, or the importance of testing for radon in the home.

    The U.S. Surgeon General lists radon exposure as the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas that enters homes through cracks in the foundation, becoming part of the air indoors. It’s estimated that 40 percent of homes in Pennsylvania have elevated levels of radon, and conducting a simple radon test is the only way to detect the amount of radon present.

    Please submit only the top three radon posters from your school by November 1st. Mail the posters to DEP at the address provided in the attached flyer. A panel of DEP staff will select the top three posters across the state and notify the teachers of the winners by email by November 19th. The First Place Winner will be entered into the 2022 National Radon Poster Contest, sponsored by the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors (CRCPD). The top three posters will be used throughout the year for educational outreach. See the attached form for details and submission instructions.

    Please help us spread awareness by educating the children in your care this year! If you need a limited amount of literature, or educational tools, or have any questions, please contact me.
