ExCEL Winter Term Sign up

ExCEL will open enrollment for the winter term which will run January 3-March 16. ALL students must re-register for the winter term, even if they attended in the fall. This is a new session.

ExCEL, Extended Community Enriched Learning, is a HRCSD program that is funded through a five-year grant administered by the Oregon Department of Education (ODE). ExCEL is an academic enrichment program that offers activities for students after school. ExCEL is free to all student who enroll. Because ExCEL is a competitive grant attendance in the program is critical. Students will be expected to maintain consistent attendance to stay in the program.

All forms need to be submitted by SUNDAY December 12th.

Registration in the ExCEL program is free. Funding for the program is provided by the federal 21st Century Community Learning Centers Grant. This grant is intended to provide after school program enrichment to students who are at risk for not achieving grade level academic standards.

Once our registration has reached capacity we will select students on the basis of need. Need will be determined by the following: academic progress, social emotional needs and/or teacher recommendation. Students selected will be notified by December 17th.


If you have questions or concerns about enrollment please contact Adrienne.acosta@hoodriver.k12.or.us
