• ELAC is the English Language Advisory Committee and is comprised of parents of children who are English Learners.
    • At McKinley, we meet  in a group called 'Hablemos,' which means 'Let's Talk.'   And that is just what we do!
    • We discuss parents' concerns about and desires for their children and their children's school. The meetings are generally held in Spanish, but we always translate when the need arises.
    • Two or three times each year, our English Language Development Specialist makes a presentation about the programs that affect our English Learners.
