Transitional Learning Model Presented at EGUSD Board Meeting on June 30, 2020 

ELK GROVE, Calif. – July 1, 2020 –The Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) received feedback and direction from its Board of Education during its June 30th EGUSD Board Meeting (Part I | Part II) after presenting the District’s methodology for a new Transitional Learning Model. This newly developed learning model complements existing learning options and provides a transitional approach toward a full return of students to an on-campus environment. Listed below are the available learning models parents can choose from that offer greater flexibility, versatility and adaptability amidst the extended period of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Transitional Model

  • Available through the school of enrollment, this program is a combination of in-person instruction with 20 or fewer people in the room, and distance learning. Extra/Co-curricular opportunities are available through the school of enrollment.

Distance Learning

  • Available through school of enrollment, this program assigns students to all applicable teachers and staff, in which the student and teachers are connected virtually and instruction is a balance of live virtual instruction and recorded/previously posted lessons. Extra/Co-curricular opportunities are available through the school of enrollment.

Independent Study

  • Available through Las Flores High School and Elk Grove USD (K-8) Virtual Academy, this program assigns students to one teacher who develops an individualized learning plan for students to make progress on their learning goals and monitors students’ independent learning progress.

Elk Grove Charter School

  • Grade 7-12 individualized learning experience combining classroom instruction, independent study and dual enrollment.

With 60 years of public education experience and growth and the onset of a global pandemic threatening the well-being of the community, EGUSD reimagined the classroom for all of its 67 schools. EGUSD continues to strive to be better than before, aiming to be a model 21st century learning institution replete with computer and digital access for students. 


In addition to the option for a Transitional Learning Model, an improved Distance Learning Model will remain in place for the 2020-2021 school year and all students and access to academic, health and social and emotional services and support will remain in place for all students and families. EGUSD plans to start the new 2020-2021 school year on August 3rd, beginning with all Year-Round Schools (Tracks B, C, D and August 24th for Track A), then August 13th with Modified and Traditional Schools.
