Extended Learning & Community Schools

About Us

At Extended Learning and Community Schools (ELCS), we oversee Discovery Link, Enrichment Programming, and many other Out of School Time (OST) activities. Our programs provide DPS students a safe, enriching place to continue their studies, explore new skills and make friends during out-of-school time. We serve 61 schools across the district and infuse Social Emotional Academic Learning (SEAL) into all of our programs.

Mission: Creating opportunities for school communities to engage and inspire Denver youth and families.

Vision: To provide high-quality programming every day at every site. We will support social, emotional, and academic learning, increase family participation and community engagement and expand middle school programming. In addition, we will develop a foundation and provide structures for DPS Elementary School Athletics, known as ELCSports, through our after school programming infrastructure.
