English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC)

Schools with 21 or more English Learners, not including Reclassified English Proficient (RFEP) students, are required to establish an ELAC.  The English Learner Advisory Council (ELAC) is a advisory council that provides the SSC with recommendations regarding:

  • programs and services for English Learner students based on academic performance data and parent and family engagement.
  • advise on the development of the SPSA
  • advise on the efforts to inform parents on the importance of regular school attendance

The minimum number of members required for the Council will be based on the number of English Learners in a school.  Parents and guardians of English Learners, not employed by the District, must constitute at least 51% of the ELAC membership.  

Meetings are typically held on the third Wednesday of the month in the Parent Center at 8:30 a.m. and are open to the public.  Please check the school calendar to confirm each meeting date, time and location.
