Enriched Learning Plan


An Enriched Learning Plan (formerly known as Subject Acceleration Protocol) has been developed for K-8 students learning significantly beyond grade level. These students will be assessed using both quantitative and qualitative evidence. Individual plans defining the most developmentally appropriate way to provide additional challenge will be developed for students assessed as significantly above grade level.

Teachers, administrators, or parents can initiate an ELP. Parents requesting evaluation for their child should start by scheduling a conference with their child’s teacher to discuss possible strategies and how best to proceed.

The Enriched Learning Plan evolved out of the “Subject Acceleration Protocol” which was proposed during the roll-out of CPS’s Innovation Agenda, during which four middle schools were created. The complete draft text of the Subject Acceleration Protocol is here.

ELPs and Transportation
When a student’s ELP includes taking a class in another building that is farther than walking distance, transportation should be available through the Cambridge Public School’s Transportation Department.  The Transportation Supervisor, Tina Fisher, oversees the coordination of this transportation.
