Extended Learning Program- Universal Screening Canceled this year

December 8, 2020

Dear Elementary Parents,

As part of the Salt Lake City School District’s ongoing commitment to meet the unique learning needs of its students, the Extended Learning Program (ELP) is available at all district elementary schools.

ELP assessment dates change from year to year, and we find it necessary to make some changes this year due to the Covid-19 impact. We hope that these changes will not impact the students’ equity of access to identification and ELP services. We will make a great effort to communicate these changes to all preschool and kindergarten parents.

Grades Pre-K-4 and Kindergarten: Universal screening is canceled this year

The assessment window for universal Pre-K-4 and Kindergarten was to take place during the month of January. Since students will not be back in school before the last week in January, this testing will not take place this year. We encourage you to help us get the message out to your teachers and parents that the opt-in application window for the ELP assessment for preschool and kindergarten is open until February 12, 2021. If you are aware of students who need gifted services in a Magnet ELP program, please encourage the parents to apply.

Magnet ELP schools:

• Emerson (dual immersion) – begins in 1st grade,

• Hawthorne – begins in kindergarten, and

• Whittier – begins in kindergarten

The application information is on each school website and can also be found on the district ELP website. The online assessment will be administered at the neighborhood schools in March. The Neighborhood ELP teacher will make arrangements for the testing.

Stay safe! Sincerely,

Michele Riggs

Supervisor, Extended Learning Program

The SLC School District wants to hear from you!


What qualities do you want to see in our new Superintendent? Now's your chance to tell us.

We are conducting a nationwide search for our new Superintendent. Part of that process is to survey our community about what they think are the most important characteristics and qualities a new Superintendent should possess. Our community survey is available in many languages and will remain open until November 2, 2020.

You will also receive a survey, for each child, asking for feedback about your experience during remote learning. Please complete the survey by Monday, October 5, 2020.
