Please do not pass this bill out of committee.  As a parent, I don't like HB 131 giving 3rd party contractors access to data like discipline incidents, parental involvement, etc... I don't like the CAT testing laws which it reinforces, and it expands the statewide network (SLDS).   I don't think it is a good idea for one company to be the soul provider for this technology, as it limits choice.  Where will we get the money to pay for this $200,000,000 technology? Surely it will end up costing more. Why are we putting so much money into implementing Common Core? It has not been tested? Please consider carefully this decision.


Thank you,


Amy Roberts
