Feb 5, 2014 Representative David Lifferth State Capitol, Suite 350 350 North State Street Salt Lake City, UT 84114 Dear Representative Lifferth, I am writing to ask that you support school readiness and vote yes on HB96. As a reading tutor in the public school system I support HB96. I feel that we need to do all that is possible to better prepare all children for kindergarten. There are many excellent preschools that do this but it an opportunity to better prepare all children if preschools receiving state funds were required to provide prep education. We see many children that quickly lag behind because they lack the basic prep to begin kindergarten. HB96 will offer an innovative way to partner with the private sector, increase the number of at-risk students who can access high-quality preschool programs, and ensure that children are ready to learn. I encourage you to support this VITAL legislation for our kids, our communities, and for the future of our state. Sincerely, Ms. Karen Hynek 342 Red Pine Dr Alpine, UT 84004-2626
