Subject: Override K-3 Early Intervention Reading Program
Date: Thu Apr 07 19:44:06 MDT 2016
Dear Utah Senators and Representatives,
I was disappointed to hear of Governor Herbert’s recent decision to veto funding for the K-3 Early Intervention Reading Program.
If students are not proficient in reading by 3rd grade, they will fall sorely behind in future years and, as a result, struggle in more advanced curriculum. Students succeed and become proficient readers through a utilization of both early reading software and classroom teaching.
I am hopeful the legislature will consider an override of this veto, and I would strongly urge you to vote in behalf of continuing this funding.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
