English Learner Committee

Description: The purpose of the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is to provide parents of English Learners with opportunities to advise the principal and school staff on the most positive and effective programs and services to improve learning of English Learners.  All schools with 21 or more students in the English as a Second Language (ESL) program must have an ELAC Committee.  ELAC Officers are elected every two years.  ELAC is the advisory board to the school on four key issues including the school plan for English Learners, needs assessment, administration of language census, and efforts to raise awareness regarding the importance of attendance.

Commitment: The committee meets once a month on Wednesdays at 9:15 am in the Community Room.
