  • Grades 3, 4 and 5 ELP Parent Nomination

    The yearly screening of students for participation in the Extended Learning Program (ELP), the elementary program for gifted and very high ability students, is underway for the 2021-2022 school year. This program is appropriate for students who are at the highest academic levels in their grade. Students can enter this screening pool by Iowa Statewide Assessment of Student Progress (ISASP) scores, teacher nomination or parent nomination.

    More information is available on the district website Departments: Curriculum: Curriculum Areas: Extended Learning Program (ELP): Elementary Services. Only grades three through five are included in this screening process.

No parent or teacher nominations are necessary for grades K-2.
