Date: Thu Apr 07 20:38:32 MDT 2016
Dear Utah Representatives,
I'm writing to request that you overturn Governor Herbert's veto for the K-3 Early Intervention Reading Program. I strongly encourage you to vote in behalf of continuing this funding.
The results of the evaluation of the showed that this program has made a significant difference for the first grade students. I believe the Governor made a mistake in voting against it, as it has helped students.
It is critical for young learners to gain literacy skills in early elementary. The literacy software programs in this initiative have been effective in making a difference for the most at-risk young learners.
Please do what is necessary to allow this early intervention program to continue making a difference for the children of Utah.
