Elk Grove Unified School District Director of Communications Xanthi Pinkerton sent out an update on the EGUSD Board Workshop that took place earlier today. Elk Grove Laguna News asked Pinkerton if there was a time table for when in person learning could resume, and she said, “not at this time.”
- Today, the Board of Education met to receive an update on EGUSD’s full distance learning and to hear and provide feedback on EGUSD’s small cohort in-person services plans for special education, English language learners, Foster Youth and students experiencing homelessness. Other District related updates were also provided.
- EGUSD has already been providing in-person assessments for students with special needs.
- EGUSD currently has 16 elementary school sites with small cohorts of students receiving services in-person through the ASES (After-School Education and Safety) Day Camp Program. The roll-out of this program began October 1, 2020 and the roll-out was gradual and is being carefully monitored.
- Moving forward, today, the Board agreed that the District should continue the work to implement the small cohort in-person services plan for special education students, English language learners, Foster Youth and students experiencing homelessness.
- All EGUSD students will continue with Full Distance Learning (even those in the small cohort in-person ASES Day Camp and those who may participate in the small cohort in-person targeted support services program.)
- As EGUSD plans forward, the District will continue to use the strategic approach for a safe, equitable and responsive return.
Linked herein are our past few updates that outline many logistical preparations and another update with this recap and any other important District information will go out on Friday afternoon:
