Elk Grove Unified Asks Parents to Voice Their Preference for Sending Their Child Back to School for the 2020-2021 School Year

Parent Input Survey

Yesterday evening, the Elk Grove Unified School District released a districtwide email asking parents to voice their preference for sending their child back to school for the 2020-2021 school year. In its commitment to serve all of the District’s students and families and by taking every step possible to ensure high quality education is balanced with health and safety, District decision makers are reaching out to identify every parent’s preferences for their child(ren) to return to school in order to more effectively deploy plans to reopen schools within the recommended Sacramento County Public Health recommendations.

School Accountability Report Cards Available

The current School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is available online at the Elk Grove Unified School District website. Both a long detailed format and a short executive summary are posted for parents to learn more about the schools in our community. Each school’s SARC summarizes the school’s mission, goals, accomplishments, and highlights the school’s unique programs. In addition, state law requires that the SARC contain all of the following: demographic data, school safety and climate for learning information, academic data, school completion rates, class sizes, teacher and staff information, curriculum and instruction descriptions, post-secondary preparation information, fiscal and expenditure data. The federal law requires that SARCs contain reports concerning the “adequate yearly progress” of students in achieving state academic achievement standards; Title I Program Improvement status; graduation rates at the secondary level; and the extent to which “highly qualified” teachers are teaching core academic subjects. A hard copy of these reports can be requested by visiting your child’s school office. Additionally, these reports have been translated in Spanish and Hmong at schools with large populations of families who speak these languages. Any questions regarding the SARCs can be answered by your child’s principal or by contacting Learning Support Services at 686-7712.
