Middle School ELP testing

Salt Lake City School District’s Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides specialized educational services for identified gifted and high ability 7th and 8th grade middle school students. ELP services are available at all district middle schools with more extensive services provided through ELP Magnet Programs at Clayton and Hillside Middle Schools and West High School.

As part of the eligibility process for the 2016-2017 school year, gifted and high ability 6th and 7th grade students may participate in the middle school testing which occurs at each elementary and middle school during November and December.  The registration deadline for testing is November 2, 2015.

Safe Technology and Digital Citizenship

A new responsibility for School Community Councils is to engage in an on-going discussion with school personnel about creating safe technology enforcement for students in public schools. Hawthorne has posted on the school website under “Community” a Salt Lake City School District and school report that addresses questions about devices used at school, programs and sites accessible to students, supervision practices and school rules regarding electronic devices to name a few.

Hawthorne's focus on safe technology and digital citizenship includes a yearly internet safety assembly for students and specific Board policies outlining acceptable student use of computers and electronic devices at school.  The internet safety assembly will be November 6th. There are two assemblies: one for k-3rd grade students at 8:45 AM and another for 4th-6th grade students at 9:30 AM.

Parent/guardian education on safe technology and digital citizenship is one of the goals for SCC and the school.


See"Community" for links and Board policies.
