Synergy – New Student Information System

Starting in 2017-2018 school year, the District is moving to a new fully integrated Student Information System, Synergy by Edupoint. This one system will replace both EGUSD’s current student information system (SISWeb) and School Loop. Synergy will provide access to both parents and students, just like School Loop. However, with Synergy, Parents/Guardians will use a single sign-on to access all of their children’s information regardless of school. Parents will access the portal using ParentVUE and students will access using StudentVUE.

Why a new system? EGUSD’s current student information system was launched in 2003. In order to meet the high expectations of EGUSD’s 21st century educational mission and comply with increasing demands of external federal and state mandates, a review committee composed of a wide range of stakeholders, determined that EGUSD needed a new state of the art Student Information System.

EGUSD Update: Don’t Let Social Media Challenge You This Summer

Student “challenges” being shared throughout social media have prompted the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) to send a notification home to parents about these “challenges” and to provide resources. As many students head into summer vacation, their well-being and safety remains a top priority, and as a Common Sense Media certified district in digital citizenship, parents should be aware of specific “challenges” noted in an article published by www.commonsensemedia.org that have caused concern in many school districts.

EGUSD Update: Gastrointestinal Illnesses and Requested Preventative Steps

As a result of multiple gastrointestinal illness (GI) outbreaks, presumably norovirus, at infant care centers and schools in six Sacramento County schools, Sacramento County Public Health (SCPH) has asked all district school officials in the county to work closely with them to investigate GI illnesses. At this time, there are no confirmed cases of norovirus in the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD). Out of an abundance of caution, however, EGUSD does ask that parents monitor their student for any of the flu-like symptoms…
