Cover Letter for 2nd Petition
for Bible Curriculum in Public Schools
Before using this, make decisions about all of the italicized items, do the homework and then cut & paste it, edit it and fill in your specific information.
Many thanks to all of you for the petitions that were sent in by (date). If you recall, I

"recommendation for approval" for the Board to vote on sometime in (month / date).
In the mean time we would like to get additional signatures on the petition to show that it has good local support. (There isn't much sense in getting a class established if there is no interest in it.) The hope is that we can get some signatures back by (date) so that we can deliver them to the School Bd meeting on (date).

It's taught by a regular school district, state certified, public high school teacher.

and Schools who accredit public schools).

Not everyone can help at the time you make your request and generally the wheels of school government move slowly so you can space these letters out over a couple of weeks. See Letter #1.
