ELA Materials Review Night for Parents / Guardians

The Elk Grove Unified School District is in the process of reviewing new middle school and high school English/Language Arts (ELA) curriculum. In order to make the best decisions for student learning, we are engaging teachers in a pilot (trial use) of ELA curriculum this school year. All publishers’ curricula being piloted are outstanding and will provide your student with high quality instructional materials to help prepare him/her for College and Career Readiness. The perspective and input from parents and guardians is valued as part of the review process. There is a Parent/Guardian ELA Materials Review Night scheduled on Tuesday, April 18, 2017, from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. Please click below for additional information.
