FORM LETTERS:
Please click on the link for a form letter that you are welcome to use to send to the State Board of Education. One is a Teacher Testimony and the other is a Parent Testimony. Each testimony can be downloaded and personalized. Please be sure to replace the yellow highlighting (at the top and bottom of the letter) with your personal information.

*To remove the yellow highlighting: left click and drag your mouse over the words with yellow highlighting.
