Upcoming UtSTA Endorsement Courses
UtSTA received a grant for UTAH teachers from the Sorensen Foundation! This is a reimbursement grant, meaning that the USTA will reimburse schools and districts up to $200.00 dollars per teacher AFTER attending the USTA conference. This money must be used for travel to the conference and to offset the cost of a Substitute Teacher for the day. Reimbursement checks will be sent to schools and districts within two weeks of the end of the conference in February.
