The Elk Grove Charter School is committed to creating individualized educational opportunities for students by combining classroom instruction, independent study instruction, and community and workplace educational experiences. This educational approach is for students who seek an alternative to the traditional classroom-only instructional approach. It is also an alternative to the Elk Grove Unified School District’s comprehensive and continuation high school programs.
We are currently enrolling for the 2016-17 school year. For more information, please see our admissions section in the links above.
The SS PLC will be starting the annual review of the Standard Quiz data which will be used to augment curriculum. The team will make adjustments, add activities or readings, and improve the effectiveness of the current curriculum. The roll out the the updated materials is for the coming fall.

With a heavy heart, I write to express my condolences and remorse for the family of Luis Felix-Urquidez. On Tuesday of last week, while visiting family and friends in the Bay Area, Luis was involved in an accident and passed away. He came to EGCS this school year from the Bay Area as an 11th-grade student; he was enrolled in both ISP and workshop classes and was on campus regularly. His teachers describe him as the model student who was liked by all, easy to get along with, hard working, respectful, and driven to reach his goals.
During this week, we will be discussing the incident with the students in his classes and provide them an opportunity to process this tragedy. The school’s counselor will lead class discussions and, if needed, district counselors will be available to meet with students individually. It is important to recognize that each person grieves in their own personal way and time frame. We encourage parents/guardians to talk to their students and inform the school of concerns. As part of the healing process, grief counseling will be available and you may contact the school counselor or office if you feel it is needed.
The family has expressed their appreciation for the support they have received from the Elk Grove Charter community and for the positive connections and experiences Luis had at the school. Luis’s family has informed me they are willing to discuss his passing with the families of his friends. Please contact me directly for information. Services for Luis will be held at the end of this week in the Bay Area. A viewing will be on Friday from 3pm - 8pm and the funeral services will be on Saturday at 12pm. His family has informed me that all are welcome to attend. I will post more specific information once I receive it.
On behalf of EGCS, we have been blessed to have this young man in our lives and as part of our community. Luis is truly loved and will be missed. We express our deepest condolences to his family and wish to offer continued support during this trying time.

We are so excited to announce our partnership with the audio book content provider Learning Ally. As an independent study site, literacy is extremely important for student success. For several years, we have required all students to participate in an elective Independent Reading class. A student's ability to select their own book titles to read has shown to have greater impact on literacy rates than simple teacher/school assigned selection. In addition, we now better understand that some students may not be as skilled or gifted in visual reading as others. Learning Ally can help auditory learners receive content from books in a way that is more effective for their needs. Learning Ally is an app based program that can be downloaded to personal devices and desktop computers and has many audio book selections. In addition, the program provides voice-to-text so readers can listen and visually follow along. ISP teachers may suggest this program for students who are struggling in the Independent Reading course. I've attached more information about the program and please contact your ISP teacher and the office if you have questions about this program and happy listening.
