The English Learner Advisory Committee, ELAC, is established to promote a meaningful connection with the parents of English learner students (EL) at the school site.  Every school with 21 or more EL students must offer the opportunity to establish an ELAC. 

The percentage of parents of English learners on the committee must be at least the same as that of English learners at the school. NOTE: Examples of membership include any parent, staff and interested community members.

The committee advises and assists the school on the following:

  • The school's program for English learners
  • The development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement
  • The school's needs assessment
  • Efforts to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance
