New Elementary School For Elk Grove

There will be a new elementary school in the Elk Grove Unified School District and if all goes well it will open in August of 2014………..The tentative name is Vineyard Pointe Elementary School and it would serve close to a thousand students………The plan is for an 11 acre campus near Bradshaw and Gerber Roads with construction beginning in the spring of next year……….The District board has given the ok to planners to move ahead with the project though one concern is that the site is in the middle of some foraging land for the Swainson Hawk which is considered a threatened species in California……A further review of the project is scheduled when the board meets on January 18th.

Sacramento -- Meet tutors participating in SCUSD's "No Child Left Behind" FREE (we like FREE) tutoring program at Wednesday's 2012-2013 Free Tutoring Provider Fair at the Serna Center, 5735 - 47th Ave. 95824, from 6 - 7:30 p.m.

How Free Tutoring Works

Funded by the federal "No Child Left Behind" program, free tutoring is available to assist students from Kindergarten through 12th grade who attend schools where student grades need improvement.  If your child's test scores need a boost -- and your family's income level qualifies -- this free tutoring program may be available where a tutor works one-on-one with your child to improve his or her test scores with English Language Arts, Reading, Math and Science.

How Your Child Qualifies for Free Tutoring  

Your child's school must qualify for participation in this program.
