Letter to the editor: Support for Laura Beem in board race

To the editor,

Please join us in supporting Laura Beem for Farmington School Board. We have been friends with Laura for several years and during that time she has put a great deal of time and energy into improving our schools here in Farmington.

Laura is a proven advocate for education and these are some of her accomplishments:?president of North Trail PTP?for two years, active volunteer with North Trail PTP?for over five years, school boundaries committee, district strategic planning committee and grassroots leader in the campaign to influence the previous board to listen to parents' concern over increasing class sizes.

Laura has over 20 years of accounting, budgeting and finance experience as well as leadership skills that could be a valuable asset to the school board.

Laura believes that by using individualized learning methods we can raise student achievement, spending needs to be focused on our classrooms, technology spending should be balanced between enhancing student learning and using our fiscal resources responsibly, we need to budget within our available resources.

We also feel that Laura will continue to improve the communication between the school board and the citizens of the community. She is committed to making our schools better for everyone.

Rick and Karen Leverson
