• About the Elementary Learning Community

    The Elementary Learning Community (ELC) is organized and staffed with an Associate Superintendent and two Directors. There are 47 elementary schools in the district including traditional neighborhood schools, Montessori schools, Arts Integrated schools, as well as schools with a variety of grade configurations. 

    The Elementary Learning Community is committed to ensuring that each elementary school has a rigorous, relevant curriculum for all students. A child's elementary school experience establishes the foundation for all future learning. We strive to provide quality instruction utilizing academic standards, as well as enrichment opportunities, to develop students who are prepared to be college and career ready.

    The district and school-level administrators, teachers, and support staff in the Elementary Learning Community are focused on continuous improvement and discovering opportunities to more effectively serve students each and every day. We pride ourselves on keeping students at the heart of our work!
