Extended Learning Program (ELP) Testing Information

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

Salt Lake City School District’s Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides specialized educational services for identified gifted and high ability Kindergarten – 6th grade elementary students at Emerson (dual immersion), Hawthorne, and Whittier Schools. Magnet ELP is a district administered program and qualified students are placed at schools by the District ELP Placement Committee. Parents do not apply to send students to a specific school. All students who qualify are offered placement, however placement choices are not guaranteed. Students in Kindergarten – 5th grades may apply to test for magnet ELP placement for the 2017-2018 school year. Students will take cognitive and achievement assessments. The assessments will be given at
the district office during the January 30 – February 28 testing window.

Parents must submit application and disclosure statement forms to the district ELP office between December 12, 2016 and January 27, 2017. Forms are on the district ELP website. Contact Amy Burris, ELP Administrative Assistant, at 801-578-8573, for further information.

Parent Information meetings will be held on Thursday, January 12 and Wednesday, January 18, 2017. They will begin at 6:00 pm at the Administration Building, 440 E. 100 S., rooms 112-114. Students who are currently in magnet ELP do not need to retest.
