Welcome!

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 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.

School Accountability Report Cards Available

 

 

The current School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is available online at the Elk Grove Unified School District website at http://www.egusd.net/academics/assessments/school-accountability-report-cards/.  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, postsecondary 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.
