Dear (District Name) School Board Candidate (or Member) (last name):

As a(voter/student/teacher/parent/administrator) in (District Name), I am taking my vote for school board members seriously. I would like to know where you stand on arts education.

 Additionally, I would like to let you know that I am a strong supporter of the arts as part of a complete education for every K-12 student in Washington state. By including the arts as an integral part of the school day, we are empowering children to develop the creative attributes that will propel them in school and in life.

I hope that we can count on you to fully support arts education initiatives, which help to create a brighter future for our students.   

Thank you for your consideration.
