Expanded Learning Opportunities Commission Cancels Learning Tour Date For Salida
The newly-formed Expanded Learning Opportunities (ELO) Commission has cancelled its last stop in Salida on Tuesday, Nov. 16.
The commission, launched by Commissioner of Education Dwight D. Jones, is working to expand the vision for the entire learning experience in ways that transcend the traditional school day and traditional classroom models.
In lieu of the meeting, educators, program providers, administrators and parents are encouraged to provide feedback to the Expanded Learning Opportunities Commission by completing an online survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/26C2Z7N. Written comments may also be sent to Vanessa Roman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The goal of the commission is to create a vision for student learning that incorporates a blend of traditional and online learning, expands the school day and standard yearly calendar and re-thinks the traditional school experience.
