The Elk Grove Unified School District is committed to ensuring that our staff, parents and students understand the changes taking place with the Common Core State Standards. To further these efforts, the District has developed a new newsletter “Getting to the Core of the Matter” that will be distributed monthly from now through April.

“Getting to the Core of the Matter” is intended to continue to build on parents’ understanding of Common Core State Standards and to provide resources for their child. The Elk Grove Unified School District is now in its second year of implementing Common Core State Standards. Teachers have gone through and will continue to attend professional development trainings to help them teach these new standards to students.  Resources and information for teachers can be found under EGUSD’s Educators CCSS webpage.

More information and resources for parents and the community can be found on EGUSD’s CCSS Parents webpage. To view the first volume of Getting to the Core of the Matter, click on one of the languages below.
