ELAC

English Learner Advisory Councils at School Site

Each California public school, grades Kindergarten through 12, with 21 or more English learners must form an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC).

The ELAC is responsible for advising the principal and staff on programs and services for English learners and the School Site Council on the development of the Single Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).  The ELAC assists the school in the development of the school's needs assessment and ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.  ELAC members are provided training and materials to assist in carrying out advisory responsibilities.

The ELAC is a great way for parents of English learners to become involved in their child’s education.  Meetings include additional informative topics and speakers.  Parents can attend the school ELAC at anytime.  For more information on the ELAC at your child’s school please visit the school website or contact your school office
