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.

Attention parents, staff, and community members!


Every May we have a Career Day for our students where we have guest speakers come and talk to our students about their career or careers they teach/prepare students for.

We’d like our students to gain real insight about different careers whether it requires a degree, certificate or other formal training.  This will expose our student to the different career opportunities and educational pathways that exists.

Our Career Day is Wednesday, May 11th and want guest speakers to cover the morning between 8:45-10:30 and/or afternoon between 1pm-3:05pm.


Please contact our school counselor, Lisa Valenzuela if you are interested in promoting your career and sharing the following:

∙             Your personal background including challenges you’ve overcome

∙             The education/training/application process required to land your career

∙             The job criteria/requirements: skills, tasks, responsibilities, including how your education/training applies in your work and personal life

EGCS is having a healthy eating competition beginning May 2nd through May 25th.


To participate, you will need to register here: http://bit.ly/1qpyHk1

Participants will need to weigh themselves the first day of the competition, May 2nd, and again on the last day of the competition, May 25th. (This is for your information only)

Throughout the competition, participants will need to follow a set of tasks: drink water, eat fruits and veggies, 30 minutes of exercise daily, no F.I.G.S., and 6 hours of sleep every night. Points are awarded for each task done. At the end of every week, participants will need to record the amount of points earned for the week here: http://bit.ly/23vpkkI

Points are earned through completing tasks as follows:

  • Water (drinking 48 oz. of water daily) = 5 points
  • Fruit/Veggies (5 servings daily) = 5 points
  • 30 Minutes of Exercise (6 days a week) = 20 points
  • No F.I.G.S. (fried food, ice cream, goodies, soda) = 15 points
  • 6 Hours of sleep = 5 points
  • 1 freebee may be used per week
  • Buy a category = you may buy one of the categories above in exchange for one of the daily tasks.
    • Example: Exercise an additional 30 minutes to earn one soda. (This can be done daily)
  • Percent of weight loss = 5 points per percent (this is only reported on the last day of the competition)
    • This is determined by taking your Ending weight/starting weight = percentage.
    • To determine total points take the percentage * 5.

Total points will be calculated on May 26th and the winner will be announced.

If you have any questions regarding the Eat Better, Feel Better Competition contact us at (916) 714-1653.


Dear Parents/Guardians,                                     April 13, 2016


As the school year winds to a close, we enter into the survey season where we ask for your input on EGCS programs, environment, academics, and EGUSD district services. In the coming weeks, you will receive a variety of surveys from both EGCS and EGUSD. We ask for your participation in providing us with this valuable information.


As a school site, we use survey information to assist in planning new programs, communication tools, academics, instruction, curriculum development, and much more. We try our best to keep the surveys short and to the point. We post all surveys on the school’s website (www.egcharter.com) and the school’s various social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram); in addition, there are times we send paper and pencil surveys home with your students (ex. EGUSD surveys) and as previously stated, this information is valuable to the school, district, and your student.


Thank you for your participation and input and we are fortunate to have you as a partner with EGCS. Go Falcons!
