The Purpose of the English Language Advisory Council (ELAC)
The purpose of the ELAC is to provide parents of English Learners the opportunity to learn more about the programs offered to their students. The ELAC advises the principal and school staff on programs and services for English Language Learners and advises the School Site Council on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement. Parents are given an opportunity to voice their concerns and have their questions answered at the meetings. In addition, topics of interest, such as reading and math skills, stages of language acquisition, and homework strategies are addressed as well. All parents of English learners are encouraged to participate in our school site ELAC and District ELAC (DELAC). These groups provide valuable input for ongoing program improvement. They additionally receive information and provide input to schools on curriculum, instruction, program evaluation, policies and budget.
