Extended Learning Program

The Extended Learning Program supports the mission of Salt Lake City School District to cultivate a

love of learning in a diverse and inclusive school community. 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 in all neighborhood schools and designated magnet

schools 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.

 

Check the district ELP website for application and assessment windows, if you are interested in having
