The Utah State Board of Education (USBE) will award grants to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to provide teachers in preschool through grade three with professional learning opportunities in early literacy and/or early mathematics.
For the purposes of calculating a grant amount, the LEA’s total number of preschool through grade three teachers is calculated by using the employee data from the previous school year of the application. An LEA must use the grant funds by the end of the fiscal year in which the funds are received.
