Subject: Please vote to override Governor's veto for funding K-3 Early Intervention Reading Program
Date: Thu Apr 07 19:49:36 MDT 2016

Dear Representatives,


We're emailing you regarding Governor Herbert’s veto for funding the K-3 Early Intervention Reading Program.  We understand the legislature is considering an override of this veto.  We ask you to vote to continue this funding.

Our daughter is in first grade and attends one of Utah’s public elementary schools.  She uses the Imagine Learning program as part of her reading curriculum at school.  She is benefiting immensely from this powerful program, and we want you to help ensure she will be able to continue benefiting from this program.

The lack of reading proficiency has an immensely negative effect on young students.  If they are not proficient in reading by third grade, they will struggle though the rest of their schooling years, and are less likely to contribute positively to society.  Early reading software along with effective teachers will ensure students succeed in school and in life!  


We greatly appreciate the legislature’s efforts to improve education for children in the state of Utah.  We believe the K-3 Early Intervention Reading program is making a difference in the schools in the state, and we hope it can continue for years to come!  

Thank you,


Randy and Becky Tingey
