About the District

The District

The Galt Joint Union Elementary School District (GJUESD) serves approximately 3,500 students in prekindergarten through eighth
grade. The elementary district operates one school readiness center,
five elementary schools, and one middle school and was recognized
as a 2018 California Exemplary District for Sacramento County.
GJUESD reflects a collaborative culture that Grows and Learns
Together to strategically implement initiatives.

The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) integrates personalized learning practices, technology tools, supports and opportunities.
The school system is committed to a well-rounded and rigorous
learner-centered education. 62% of learners come from
socioeconomically disadvantaged homes (percentages ranging from 45%–88% at our 6 schools). English language learners comprise
21% of the district’s population (ranging from 10%–50% at our schools).
13% of our learners receive special education services.

Every K–8 school operates libraries as Bright Future Learning Centers (BFLCs) for learning, career education, research, and enrichment.
BFLC clubs or learning academies include robotics, coding,
culinary arts, and horse mastership. Every school supports a music
program with choir and band options. The district has exceptional learning partners including San Joaquin Delta College, California State University Sacramento, Stanford University, Cosumnes River Nature Preserve, WestEd, NASA and the Central Valley Foundation. 
Recently, GJUESD was selected as one of eight northern California
school systems to advance student-centered learning in partnership
with the Stanford d-school and Genentech.
