Extended Learning Program Application Process

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, 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).
Elementary Magnet ELP classes are housed at Emerson, 1-6 (dual language Spanish), Hawthorne,
K-6, and Whittier, K-6. All elementary schools have neighborhood ELP, with pull-out services
three hours per week.
Middle School Magnet ELP classes are housed at Clayton, Glendale, Hillside Middle Schools, and
West High School. All middle schools have neighborhood ELP.
