SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah is one of 21 states that will receive special federal funding to turn around low-performing schools.

Utah was awarded $576,478 and will spend the money conducting instructional audits at five public schools.

Utah Office of Education analyst Ann White said the state will coach teachers at the schools and give principals leadership training.

White said the five schools have yet to be selected.

The U.S. Department of Education awarded the grants under the No Child Left Behind program.
