Dear Representatives, State School Board Members, and members of the Public 

Education Appropriations Subcommittee,

I am the parent of 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.
