English Learners Advisory Committee (E.L.A.C.)

English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

The purpose of the English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC) is to advise the principal, School Site Council and school staff on programs and services for English Learners. Parents and guardians of English learner students (ELs) together with other parents, staff and community members meet to learn about services and programs for English learners and offer advice to improve the education of ELs at our school. The parents of English Learners elect officers and at least one representative to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). All parents and guardians are encouraged to join.

Parents of English Learners have the right to:  

  1. Become informed and provide advice on programs and services for English Learners

  2. Become a member of the ELAC
