Experiential Learning Project (ELP)

Effective immediately for the Graduation Class of 2021, the Experiential Learning Project (ELP) will not be required for a diploma, but may continue as a required class assignment by the teacher as part of the curriculum (Board Resolution 19-02-21, Board approved: 2/9/21).

Students attending high school in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District must complete the Experiential Learning Project (ELP) to graduate from high school (Board Policy 6146.1).

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District is committed to involving its students and faculty in our community through the implementation of the Experiential Learning Project (ELP) for all students in grades 9 - 12.

The opportunity to serve those in our community contributes not only to the community, but also to the growth of each individual who participates. It is important to note that many colleges and universities are looking for strong participation in the community. The ELP graduation requirement will provide the opportunity for all NMUSD high school students to have a positive impact in our communities.
