2020-2021 Magnet Extended Learning Program Information


Is your child a rapid learner who puts thoughts together quickly?

Does your child have an excellent memory or an unusually large vocabulary?

Does your child have an advanced comprehension of word nuances, metaphors and abstract ideas?

If so, the district’s Extended Learning Program may be a good fit for your child.

The district has designed and implemented an Extended Learning Program to meet the cognitive and affective needs of identified gifted students. Through ELP, a continuum of program options provides a beneficial learning environment and curriculum designed to meet the needs of gifted/talented and high ability students.

The Extended Learning Program is designed to serve gifted and high ability students in two service models in elementary and middle schools:

(1) Magnet self-contained ELP (grades K-8), and (2) Neighborhood ELP (grades 4-8). 

If you are interested in having your child assessed for a possible Magnet ELP placement: For students currently in grades 1 – 7, fill out the online application on the ELP website between Tuesday, September 8, 2020 and Wednesday, October 14, 2020. Assessment window: November 2 – November 24, 2020.
