Over the next four years, Elk Grove Unified School District will be engaged in an exciting collaboration with American Institutes for Research as part of the Algebra Readiness Project, funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Educational Sciences. Together, EGUSD and AIR are collecting and analyzing data to examine the educational benefits of enrolling in an advanced math course sequence beginning in eighth grade.
On May 11th, 2016 during Advocacy, seventh grade students will be asked to complete a brief survey. The survey will include common questions about students’ social and emotional skills, perseverance in the face of difficulty, and their opinions about mathematics.
Please read the attached letter and complete the form if you DO NOT wish to have your child participate in the Social Emotional Learning Student Survey. Completed forms should be turned in to Kim Wallace in the Toby Johnson Administration Office by May 4th, 2016.
