Every California public school grades K-12 with 21 or more English Learners must form a school site ELAC. In our November 9, 2021 meeting, ELAC members voted to merge with our School Site Council.
The major function/purpose of the ELAC is to advise the principal and school staff on the programs and services for English Learners. Any parent whose first language is not English is invited to attend the meetings which take place 4 times a year.
The ELAC shall assist the school in the development of:
- EL assessments
- The school's annual language census
- Ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance
