ELO/SAIL Extended Learning Opportunities

NEW UPDATE:  In light of the current restrictions in place to ensure public health and safety, MCPS will not be recruiting student volunteers to assist with the Extended Learning Opportunities (ELO) summer programs for 2020. Students may continue to engage in other MCPS SSL opportunities during the summer, including select virtual/remote opportunities that follow the temporarily amended guidelines. All MCPS SSL opportunities can be found at Montgomery County Volunteer Center (MCVC). These opportunities will be tagged with the blue MCPS SSL banner and graduation cap icon.

To learn more about the MCPS SSL program, go to MCPS SSL Guidelines for Virtual/Remote SSL Opportunities. If you have questions, please email Ms. Donna K. Kleffman, Instructional Specialist, Office of Student and Family Engagement and Support, at Donna_K_Kleffman@mcpsmd.org.
