We are pleased to have the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP) in our school in Mrs. Jakositz's music class. The program 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 300 Utah elementary schools in 31 districts (including over 30 charter schools) and is serving approximately 202,800 students. To help support the program statewide, parents are encouraged to write to their legislators once a year.
