Subject: Please OPPOSE Funding Change for Charter Schools

Dear Representatives, State School Board Members, and members of the Public Education Appropriations Subcommittee, My name is Tamela Blake and I am the parent of 2 children attending public school in Provo. I am writing to express my opposition to the proposed increase in the amount local school districts contribute to the local charter school replacement fund. This recommendation would require the Provo School Board to either channel money away from traditional public schools or raise taxes. While charter schools have an important place in public education and require funding, this proposal requires local boards to pay for schools over which they have no oversight or control. Please OPPOSE this recommendation. Sincerely, Tamela Blake - PTA President at Canyon Crest Elementary 530 E 4550 North Provo, UT 84604
