Schools

Dixie State University is proud to partner with the Utah State Board of Education (USBE) and the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program (BTSALP) in working with the Washington County and Kane County elementary and charter schools. DSU provides professional development for art specialists and classroom teachers, and manages the implementation of the BTS program within the region. DSU currently works with 22 BTS programs that provide either music, visual art, or dance to an estimated 10,500 students. The BTSALP arts specialists are highly qualified educators in their art form that work tirelessly to provide a “well-rounded” education for their students. DSU appreciates the efforts of the Kane and Washington County school districts, charter schools, executives, principals, and teachers in supporting BTSALP, and recognizes the individuals and schools that currently provide BTSALP opportunities for their students.
