State Board of Education Awards POPS Grants to Three Arts Organizations

SALT LAKE CITY – Earlier this year, the Utah Legislature voted to expand Professional Outreach Programs in the Schools (POPS), which brings arts organizations into public schools to enrich the curriculum. The expansion came with $200,000 in grants funding. The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) approved the following organizations for this expanded funding:

The remaining balance of $50,000 will be held for future expansion of the POPS. The program makes Utah fine and performing artists available to perform or work with students and teachers in public schools throughout the state. The three arts organizations join a dozen others to provide services through the grant.
