Subject: HB228 School Board Amendements - Please consider amending
Date: Mon Feb 24 03:03:13 MST 2014
Dear Representative:

I have a great amount of respect for the work you do for our state.  Thank you.  

I support the reporting amendments.  We don't need limitations.  We need financial transparency.  

Election to the board.  This bill brings an important discussion to the table.  I don't think just anyone should be in charge of our children's education but I do think the citizens should elect board members.  Just as there are qualifiers in place for the AG and other offices, I think there ought to be well thought out qualifiers for this position.  The qualifiers in current statute don't impress me.  I do support parent representation. 

Maybe send it back to rules with a recommendation for interim study?  We do need change, but  we need responsible change.  

Thank you.

Laura Warburton
