    NEW! Extended Day for Learning Plus (EDL Plus)

    EDL Plus is a collaborative program between the Office of Digital and Alternative Education and Community Education. It is funded through COVID-19 relief funds from the American Rescue Plan (ARP) and will be expanded to additional schools over the next three years. EDL Plus offers after-school learning opportunities that provide hands-on, project-based experiences to engage students in topics they are interested in. 

    The six 2021-2022 EDL Plus pilot schools are:

    • Battle Creek Elementary
    • Cherokeee Heights Elementary
    • Eastern Heights Elementary
    • Hamline Elementary
    • Highwood Hills Elementary
    • Phalen Lake Hmong Studies Magnet

    The pilot sites were selected using student achievement and Extended Day for Learning data. Classes are led by SPPS teachers and community instructors to ensure our students have the best learning experiences. Bus transportation is not available at this time.

    EDL Plus will be a great learning opportunity for our students. Registration inquiries can be directed to the site administrator or EDL site leader.

    How to register: If your student attends one of the six 2021-22 EDL Plus pilot schools listed above, contact the school.
