Subject: I Urge You to Vote Yes on HB96!
Feb 10, 2014 Representative Lee Perry State Capitol , Suite 350 350 North State Street Salt Lake City, UT 84114 Dear Representative Perry, I am writing to ask that you support school readiness and vote YES on HB96. High-quality preschool is a proven strategy that changes the odds for at-risk children who lack opportunity. Participation in a high-quality preschool program ensures these children enter kindergarten on-track with their peers and reach proven benchmarks. It also increases their chances of graduating from high school, receiving post-secondary education, and obtaining a stable job, which ultimately, saves the state and taxpayers millions by avoiding costly remediation programs. HB96 will offer an innovative way to partner with the private sector, increase the number of at-risk students who can access high-quality preschool programs, and ensure that children are ready to learn. Please, PLEASE support this VITAL legislation for our kids, our communities, and for the future of our state. I STRONGLY feel there is no better need than giving parents choices and providing kids who are at risk the opportunities needed for better life!! Sincerely, Mrs. Courtney Archer 3424 E Brockbank Dr Salt Lake City, UT 84124-4704
