What is ELP?
The Extended Learning Program philosophy challenges students at their level of individual academic capacities so that they are involved in a successful educational experience. Through ELP, a continuum of services pattern provide a beneficial learning environment and curriculum designed to meet the needs of academically gifted students.
Even though the school year has just begun, it is time to begin thinking about the next school year. The middle school Extended Learning Program testing window runs from October through the end of November.
The Extended Learning Program provides educational services for identified middle school students who demonstrate high academic abilities and are found eligible for services. Parent information meetings to explain the Extended Learning Program (ELP) middle school testing process for the 2012-13 school year are scheduled for Tuesday, September 25, and Thursday, September 27. Both meetings will be held at the Salt Lake City School District offices, 440 East, 100 South. Both begin at 6:30 p.m. and last approximately one hour.
Meetings include information about neighborhood ELP programs at all district middle schools and magnet programs at Clayton and Hillside Middle Schools, West High School, and the International Pathways Program at Hillside Middle School. Both meetings are similar in content. Choose either to attend. Your 6th or 7th grade student is invited, but not required, to attend with you.
