Extended Learning Opportunities

ELOs are a new learning initiative in the Pattonville School District that are designed to allow students to pursue their interests and career aspirations in a variety of non-traditional ways.

The goal is for the student to be exposed to real world applications in their area of interest. ELOs are designed and driven by a learner’s authentic interest, allowing them to pursue their interests and career aspirations in a variety of non-traditional ways.

Extended Learning Opportunities are:

  • Highly flexible and individualized to the learner’s needs and goals 

  • Developed in partnership with school and community members to meet specific competencies

  • Agreed-upon goals and competencies are rigorous and frame the ELO experience with 

  • A minimum of 60 hours of engagement

  • A project and presentation will be the culmination of the ELO experience

  • Credit can be awarded if the learner has fulfilled all requirements of the ELO

Students will engage in a personalized learning experience to demonstrate proficiency on a select set of competencies agreed upon by the school advisor and community/industry partner. Once a student has proven they have met these competencies, credit is awarded to the student.
