2020 - 2021 Magnet Extended Learning Program Information

The Extended Learning Program supports the mission of Salt Lake City School District (SLCSD) to cultivate a love of learning in a diverse and inclusive school community, committed to educational excellence and integrity. In collaboration with families and community, we hold high expectations for all students. We respond effectively to individual needs, and provide a safe, healthy environment in which every student can learn the academic, problem-solving and social skills required for success in college, career, and life. 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). Grade 4 this year is open to all 4th grade students who would like more depth, complexity, and challenge. Elementary Magnet ELP Students take a battery of cognitive and achievement assessments in the eligibility process. Students who meet the Magnet ELP eligibility criteria are offered Magnet ELP placement. Elementary Magnet ELP classes are housed at Emerson grades 1-6 (Dual Language Spanish) Hawthorne grades K-6, and Whittier grades K-6. All elementary schools have Elementary Neighborhood ELP All grade 4 students can access a 4th Grade Discovery on Canvas this year. Assessments have been postponed due to remote learning.
