The English Learners Advisory Committee is focused on enabling programs to help students become proficient in English. The Committee is primarily made up of parents of Limited-English Proficient (LEP) students with the goal of getting the students reclassified once they hit their target numbers on the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). ELAC makes budget and program recommendations to School Site Council (SSC) on how to spend funds designated for bilingual education. ELAC also helps in developing the school's language census.
The ELAC board is made up of parents and legal guardians. Caregivers, staff and community members may also join and have a voice. The meetings are open to the public and occur the second (2nd) Thursday of every month unless otherwise stated. Please see the school calendar to verify when your ELAC meeting will be held. Signs are posted on campus two (2) weeks before the meeting dates and flyers are sent home with each student.
