ELAC

English Learner Advisory Committee

What is ELAC?

ELAC (E-lac) stands for English Learner Advisory Committee. It is the site-based committee that meets to discuss the needs of the English Learner (EL) students at a particular school.

 

What does an ELAC do?

The ELAC is responsible for:

-  Advising the Principal and staff on the programs for EL students

-  Developing the Site Needs Assessment

-  Informing parents of the importance of school attendance

-  Training the ELAC officers on their roles and responsibilities

-  Providing training opportunities for EL families

-  Advising and participating in DELAC (District-level ELAC)

-  ELAC meets 4-5 times per year

 

Why is it important to get involved in ELAC?

At Barnett Elementary School, our ELAC meets to discuss the diverse needs of our English Learner students. We need you to come, share your feedback, and tell us how we can best support your child and family.

 

 

"The California Legislature is committed to assuring that parents/guardians of English learners have a voice in the education of their children.  This belief is reflected in the passage of specific California Education Code (EC) and California Code of Regulation (CCR) sections requiring English Learner Advisory Committees (ELAC) and District English Learner Advisory Committees (DELAC) to be in place in schools and districts that educate English learners.

 

California Education Code (EC) 52176(b) states, "Each school with more than 20 (21 or more) pupils of limited English proficiency shall establish a school level advisory committee on which parents or guardians or both, of such pupils constitute membership in at least the same percentage as their children and wards represent of the total number of pupils in the school.and designate for this purpose an existing school level advisory committee or subcommittee of such an advisory committee, if the advisory committee or subcommittee where appropriate, meets the criteria stated above."
