Enhanced Distance Learning Camps and Walk-In Learning Labs

  • Enhanced Distance Learning Camps for SUSD Kindergarten through 8th Grade Students

    Thank you for your interest in SUSD’s Enhanced Distance Learning Camps (EDL Camps) for SUSD families with Kindergarten through 8th grade students.

    The EDL Camps provide families with a supervised place for their K-8 children to be during the school day while they are at work. They will continue to operate until such time as school campuses reopen for learning. This program is required under Executive Order 2020-51, Open for Learning, issued by Gov. Doug Ducey.

    We have five EDL camps, located at Desert Canyon Elementary, Hopi Elementary, Pima Traditional, Pueblo Elementary and Tonalea K-8. If you are interested in an EDL Camp, please complete this form.

    • Students would be required to stay at the camp for the entire school day.
    • Applications would be prioritized in this order: children of First Responders (including health care workers); children of SUSD staff members; children who receive SUSD Special Education or English Language services; children who have a 504 Plan or attend a Title I school; children of Essential Workers.
    • Nutrition Services would provide breakfast and lunch at all EDL Camp sites. Meals charges would be based on each student's individual, approved meal status: paid, reduced or free. Find the Free and Reduced Application online at susd.org/Meals, in school offices and at the Nutritional Services Office at 701 N. Miller Rd., Scottsdale, AZ 85257.


    Before- and After-School Child Care

    To address before- and after-school hour care, SUSD’s Community Education Department will offer fee-based programs at four of the five EDL Camp sites: Desert Canyon, Hopi, Pima and Pueblo.

    The City of Scottsdale will sponsor a fee-based, after-school-only program at Tonalea. For information, please contact the City’s Youth Development office at 480-312-2329 or yd@ScottsdaleAZ.gov. Planning is still underway for the City’s usual after-school programs at Navajo, Hohokam/Yavapai and Echo Canyon.

Doug Ducey’s Executive Order 2020-51, Open for Learning, Scottsdale Unified School District is pleased to offer 6th through 12th grade students a safe place during the school day to participate in their online learning.  "Walk-In Learning Labs" will open on Monday, August 17 at Coronado High School and Saguaro High School.
