Salt Lake City School District is your best choice for fine arts education. We are currently focusing on the goal that every child has access to a quality arts education.
The Salt Lake City School District Office of Fine Arts under the Department of Academic Services and Professional Development expects that the Utah State Office of Education Fine Arts Core Curriculum which includes music, visual art, drama, and dance be taught to our students. We are working towards this outcome by providing professional development, resources, and support for our classroom teachers.
We currently have 29 Artstream Schools that have made a commitment to providing arts education to their students. Twenty of our elementary schools are currently participating in the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program, where a half time arts specialist is funded through a legislative initiative. Salt Lake City School District also funds music specialists for each of its elementary schools. We also appreciate any support we receive from our patrons, arts organizations, business and community partners.

The Salt Lake City School District is thrilled to have the following elementary schools participate in the BTSALP (Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program):
