In an effort to create a resource tool for current Expanded Learning Opportunity (ELO) providers, the Oklahoma Partnership for Expanded Learning (OPEL) has drawn upon national research and existing documents on how to start ELO programs. This book has links to articles, books, useful websites and funding sources for programs to consider. Our intent is to place as many resources into one space as possible so ELO providers don’t have to search endlessly.
OPEL will be adding additional chapters to this book to include information on the focused programs areas of STEM, arts, health & wellness and literacy. Please sign up for our Newsletter to receive notification on new chapters.
Some helpful suggestions: when playing videos, please expand the link to play. Forms are hyperlinked from this book to Google docs, which you can download and modify as needed for your program. If you are new to using Google docs, please refer to section 6.1 for an introduction.
