Expanded Learning Opportunities

What is the expanded Learning Opportunities Program?

The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELO-P) provides funding for afterschool and summer school enrichment programs for transitional kindergarten through sixth grade with program activities that support the whole child, and students’ Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) and development.

“Expanded learning” means before school, after school, summer, or intersession learning programs that focus on developing the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs and interests of pupils through hands-on, engaging learning experiences. It is the intent of the Legislature that expanded learning programs are pupil-centered, results driven, include community partners, and complement, but do not replicate, learning activities in the regular school day and school year.

What ELO programs are available for students?

We currently offer ELO activities Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2:45-3:30 PM, focusing on intervention and enrichment classes in the areas of math, reading, science, music, and art. We also support our families with providing additional hours in our KIDS Club program.

How does my child participate in ELO programs?

Classroom teachers will reach out to families of students who would benefit most from ELO-P intervention activities and classes. Participation is optional but highly encouraged. Enrichment activities may be offered throughout the year and open to all students in targeted grade levels.
