Arts Education at Utah State University
This program is a collaborative initiative between USU’s Center for Persons with Disabilities, the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program, the Utah State Office of Education and others to implement new programs at the elementary school level in arts education.
The Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP) provides arts-integrated instruction to elementary students, effectively increasing student performance in every subject —from language arts and social studies to math and science. The program is currently in 380 Utah elementary schools in 31 districts (including over 30 charter schools) and is serving approximately 202,800 students. The BTSALP's mission is to increase the quality and quantity of arts learning experiences for elementary students and teachers in the USU service area.
