District Magnet ELP Testing, Grades K-6

Salt Lake City School District’s Extended Learning Program (ELP) Elementary Assessment Information

The Salt Lake City School District's elementary Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides gifted educational services for identified gifted and high ability Kindergarten through grade six students. As part of the eligibility identification process for the 2018-2019 school year, parents of pre-k through grade five students may choose to have their child evaluated. This evaluation consists of both cognitive and academic assessments.
Students qualifying for an ELP placement have shown that they need an academic program that allows them to move more quickly, work with more complex concepts, and delve more deeply into academic content.  
ELP services are available at all district elementary schools, with full-day Magnet classes at Emerson (dual immersion), Hawthorne, and Whittier Elementary schools. Testing is for the program, not a specific school. Parents may make a first, second, and third choice of school, but placement at a specific school is not guaranteed.

Please submit registration and disclosure statement forms to the district ELP office between December 6, 2017 and January 26, 2018. These forms are available on the district website,  http://www.slcschools.org/departments/curriculum/extended-learning-program, at all district elementary schools, and through the ELP Office. You may contact Amy Burris, ELP Administrative Assistant, at 801-578-8573.
