EDL - Extended Day Programs

Extended Day Learning (EDL)

The ALC program is now called EDL (Extended Day for Learning).  EDL is an after-school program that targets students who need support in math, reading, and writing because they are performing below grade level in one or more of these areas.  It is a federally funded program and is now fused with the S.O.A.R.ing Eagles Program.

EDL classes are mixed into the enrichment classes offered by the SOARing Eagles program to motivate students to attend both, academic as well as enrichment classes. All students receive 4 hours of EDL classes a week and 4 hours of enrichment classes. For Kindergarten through 6th grade this means 2 hours a week of math and reading and 2 hours of enrichments that include the common core standards.

For middle school students it is 2 hours of math and 2 hours of reading a week (generally one class a day). Students in grades 7 and 8 can actually recover day school credits in their EDL classes. As long as they don't miss more than 3 times and participate, they will be able to receive .25 credits per class per session.

Band is also available for 4th - 8th graders.
