Extended Learning Program

The mission of our gifted education program is to provide challenge, enrichment, and/or acceleration to meet gifted students' academic and social/emotional needs. The Extended Learning Program (ELP) serves gifted and high ability students. Programming is designed to enable students in grades K-12 to participate in differentiated learning options that meet their diverse and unique needs. The goals for these students are to:
  • become independent, life-long learners.
  • develop their intellectual and academic abilities through challenging instructional activities and materials.
  • work with others of similar abilities.
  • receive appropriate academic guidance and counseling.
  • receive career counseling and exploration opportunities.
  • strengthen skills to develop social/emotional strategies.

ELP is staffed by specially certified teachers. The program is regularly evaluated as per the District's Curriculum Review process and is updated with regard to the ELP Curriculum Review Improvement Plan. The gifted education program has been established in accordance with Iowa Code.
