Welcome to our new School Counselor, Aundrea Dilanchian

Hello Parents!

My name is Aundrea and I am Dilworth’s new School Counselor! I am so excited to be here and so grateful to be able to work with your students!

A little bit about me, I am a Salt Lake City transplant from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I received my Bachelors of Social Work with a minor in Political Science from The University of Tennessee. During my undergraduate career, my research focused on geriatric mental health. Then I received my Masters of Clinical Social Work from Florida State University. My research during my graduate career looked at child and adolescent development, effective co-parenting for divorced families, forming and maintaining healthy familial relationships, and animal therapy. During my spare time I love being outside in our beautiful Utah mountains and spending time with my two fur babies, a 5-year-old Lab named Maggie and a 12-year-old thoroughbred horse named Liebe!

I am here to offer support to you and your students in any way that I can. I am at the school Monday-Thursday 10:00 am-3:00 pm. I can provide emotional support through one-on-one counseling with a student OR group counseling consisting of multiple students focusing on a certain subject matter. I am also here to help connect families to community resources or listen to any concerns a parent or teacher may have about their student. I can’t wait to meet you and your students and am ready for a great school year!

Elementary School Extended Learning Program (ELP) Assessment Information

Salt Lake City School District’s Extended Learning Program (ELP) Elementary Assessment Information The Salt Lake City School District's elementary Extended Learning Program (ELP) provides gifted educational services for identified gifted and high ability Kindergarten through grade six students. As part of the eligibility identification process for the 2018-2019 school year, parents of Pre-K through Grade Five students may choose to have their child evaluated. This evaluation consists of both cognitive and academic assessments.

Students qualifying for an ELP placement have shown that they need an academic program that allows them to move more quickly, work with more complex concepts, and delve more deeply into academic content.

ELP services are available at all district elementary schools, with full-day Magnet classes at Emerson (dual immersion), Hawthorne, and Whittier Elementary schools. Testing is for the program, not a specific school. Parents may make a first, second, and third choice of school, but placement at a specific school is not guaranteed.

Please submit registration and disclosure statement form sto the district ELP office between December 6, 2017 and January 26, 2018. These forms are available on the district website,, at all district elementary schools, and through the ELP Office. You may contact Amy Burris, ELP Administrative Assistant, at 801-578-8573.

If you are interested in learning more about the Extended Learning Program, you may want to attend one of our Parent Information Meetings. These meetings will be held from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM:

  • Wednesday, January 10 at Hillside Middle School Auditorium, 1825 S Nevada Street,
  • Thursday January 11 at Northwest Middle School Auditorium, 1730 W 1700 N, and,
  • Thursday, January 18 at the Salt Lake City School District offices, 440 E 100 S, Rooms 112-114.
