Extended School Program

Jordan Carder
Interim ESP Director


ESP (Extended School Program) is an after-school program in Elizabethton City Schools serving children from grades Pre-K through 8. This program is funded in part by the 21st CCLC Grant. 

The program gives students an opportunity after school and throughout the summer to participate in educational activities and physical exercise. Through partnerships with Coordinated School Health, the Carter County Health Department, and other organizations, ESP has been able to offer many wonderful programs. ESP is always looking for ways to strengthen partnerships within the community to provide stimulating activities and curricula for our students.

Elizabethton City Schools Extended School Program (ESP) Update for the 2023-2024 School Year:
ESP will open August 8, 2023. ESP will remain operating from each school and will not merge into one location. Students enrolled at East Side will stay at East Side and so forth. So, parents will pick up their children from the school they attend during the day. ESP registration will be online like it was last year.  Registration will open July 25th at 8am for K-8 students. Pre-K registration will open Aug. 3rd at 8am. Spots are limited and time stamps will be used for registration to determine who gets the spots available. Please do not try to register before this time as it will have to be deleted and redone.
