Welcome to
 Extended Learning
  And Community Schools


The Department of Extended Learning and Community Schools oversees many of the after-school programs in the district, including Discovery Link Licensed School-Age Child Care at 36 elementary schools, and the Neighborhood Center   programs at Cole, Lake, Noel, Morey, Place, Randolph and Skinner middle schools, Techknow and Supplemental Services programs.

All of these programs provide DPS students a safe, enriching place to continue their studies, explore new skills and make friends during out-of-school time.

The department also includes Denver Public Schools Volunteer Services, which facilitates the use of over 500 volunteers to enhance learning opportunities for students throughout the district, and also handles Community Donations for the school district.


The Extended Learning administrative office is now located at 1617 S. Acoma St.  Please see the Discovery Link website for further details regarding our move and office contact information.
