Extended Learning Program (ELP)

Join us for an Extended Learning Program Q & A Zoom meeting

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

❖ Does your child have an excellent memory or an unusually large vocabulary and complex sentence structure for his/her age?

❖ 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. Applications for the 2021-2022 school year are available on the Extended Learning Program website. Check the ELP website for application deadlines, and assessment timelines.
