Utah will recognize ANY properly issued concealed carry permit BUT, and it is a big but, Federal law ONLY allows those with permits issued by the state in which the school is located to carry in K-12 type schools (1000 feet from the property)
As for PUBLIC schools, the schools can take NO action against an individual (employee or not) with a concealed carry permit for carrying in/on school grounds or buildings!
Little quirk.... since Utah permits ALLOW concealment but don't require it, you can legally OPEN CARRY in a school with your UTAH permit.
