Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:

Section 53A-1-401 allows the Utah State Board of Education (Board) to make rules to execute the Board's duties and responsibilities under the Utah Constitution and state law; and Section 53A-17a-162 directs the Board to establish a grant program for local education agencies (LEAs) to hire qualified arts professionals to encourage student participation in the arts in Utah public schools and embrace student learning in Core subject areas.

Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:

No written comment was received.

Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:

This rule continues to be necessary because it implements the BTSALP model in public schools through LEAs and consortia that submit grant applications to hire arts specialists who are paid on the licensed teacher salary schedule. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
