Free of Charge PSAT Testing for 10th Grade Students

Dear Parents and Guardians:

The attached letter is to inform you of an exciting opportunity that will give your 10th grade son/daughter a head start to their future.

By action of the district’s Board of Education to fund this opportunity, and through a unique partnership between the Elk Grove Unified School District (EGUSD) and the College Board, all EGUSD 10th graders will have the chance to take the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) free of charge.  School districts in which the PSAT is administered to 10th grade students have experienced significant growth in student achievement, but more importantly, through the PSAT, the students, themselves, gain valuable academic experience and build important skills for future success.

Please open the attached letter for further information.

The Elk Grove Unified School District has launched a new secure EGUSD Portal website that will allow parents and guardians the option to receive their student’s official academic progress reports and report cards electronically.  Parents and guardians will also be able to securely update and change opt-out elections, such as directory information, posting of student photos, and movies and videos.  Additional features and reports are planned for the portal in the near future that will provide parents and guardians with the opportunity to view other academic information about their student rather than receive printed reports through the U.S. mail.
