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.
Wow! we are already to the end of the semester. We will have finals in just 2 weeks. For the second year, EGCS will have a dedicated finals week (Dec. 12-15). All workshops will have a final during that week and many of them will encompass the entire 3 hour block of time. The Finals' schedule is in the final stages of review and will be sent out early next week. However, I did want to make sure I touched on some very important aspects of the finals week and the end of the semester prior to the schedule release.
First, participation in the workshop's final is mandatory. All students must attend the scheduled final in order to pass the workshop course. The finals process is one that has been identified by EGCS as an important area of growth for our students. It exposes them to the testing environment that often exists after high school.
Also, on Friday Dec. 16, 2016 (the last day of the semester), we will only have ISP meetings. All workshops will end on Thursday to give ISP teachers time to meet with students and collect the final assignments for the semester. Many students may be scheduled for a "mini" ISP meeting on Thursday or Friday in order to ensure we see all students. Please check with your student's ISP teacher to see when their last meeting will be. Also, many students will be given an assignment to be complete during the first week in January. This is to address the gap in time from the first day of the next semester (Jan. 4th) and your student's first ISP meeting. Once again, the ISP teacher will explain all of this in more detail at the next meetings. If you have any questions please feel free to call either the ISP teacher or myself.
Lastly, the weather is turning cold and many students have extended time on campus. We don't always have a warm place to accommodate students, so please ensure they are prepared for the elements and have pre-arranged transportation to eliminate the time they may be exposed to the elements. We will make every attempt to get them covered and protected, but sometimes that just isn't possible.
Thank you for your support of EGCS and I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
