IS AN ELO FOR ME?
- Can I commit to doing an ELO on my own time?
- Am I ready to learn something new?
- Am I ready to learn how my skills, talents and
abilities will prepare me for the world of work?
HOW DO I GET STARTED?
Step 1: Make an appointment with your
school ELO Coordinator
During this appointment, you will learn
about the ELO process and identify your learning goals and how an ELO can help
Step 2: Fill out and return the ELO
student application (download application here)
Once you decide an ELO is for you, you
will complete and sign the ELO application. A parent or guardian signature is
required. (Note: Even if a student
is 18 or over, an application must STILL be signed by a parent/guardian unless the
student has a notarized form on file with the school indicating they can sign
Step 3: Draft a plan for your ELO
with your ELO Coordinator
This is the fun part! Based on your
needs, you will help create a project outline which will identify the
competencies and learning objectives of your ELO. Your outline will be finalized with the help of a cooperating teacher and/or the District ELO Cooperating Teacher (DECT)at your school.
