Integrating pre-collegiate, pre-career and prosocial skills with academic rigor gives students an innovative approach that meets their need to be creative communicators and critical thinkers upon graduation
The Elk Grove Unified School District’s (EGUSD) Graduate Profile is a shared vision that identifies a set of student outcomes to define what all EGUSD graduates should know and be able to do in order to be prepared for post-secondary education, career and civic participation.
“The primary objective for developing the Graduate Profile is to integrate academic knowledge with the skill sets –such as 21st century skills—that will allow students to flourish in post-secondary education and, ultimately, careers. We want to demonstrate to post-secondary and business partners that an EGUSD graduate has the top quality skills and dispositions they need for a global economy and workforce,” explained Christopher R. Hoffman, superintendent of Elk Grove Unified School District.
The EGUSD’s mission to provide a learning community that challenges ALL students to realize their greatest potential connects with the District’s E4 integrated learning system and strategic goals. The District strives to have every student learning in every classroom, every subject, every day, as well as to provide high quality instruction that is guided through assessment, delivered in a culturally responsive manner and where students benefit from programs and services designed to be inclusive. With its mission, vision and strategic goals aligned, EGUSD is well positioned to achieve its key objectives.
As a community, the Elk Grove Unified School District looks forward to creating abundance by preparing its students for college and career by supporting them in building their Graduate Profile which will demonstrate that they are creative problem solvers; self-aware, self-reliant, and self-disciplined; technically literate; effective communicators and collaborators; and engaged in the community as individuals with integrity.
