BTS Arts Learning Program

The Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP) places arts specialists in over 200 schools throughout Utah. The program operates under the direction of the Utah State Office of Education and is funded by the Utah legislature.

BTSALP arts specialists teach side by side with the classroom teachers to provide exceptional arts instruction that is integrated into the core curricula. BYU, the University of Utah, Utah State University, Southern Utah University, Weber State University, and Westminster College provide professional development for the specialists and school faculties in many of the participating schools.

BYU is proud to be a participant in this program, and the BYU Arts Partnership coordinates its programs to optimize the benefits for teachers and students.

Applications to participate in this program are accepted in the spring by USOE.
