English Learners Advisory Committee
All parents of English learners are welcome to participate in their school site (ELAC) and District level English Language Advisory Councils (DELAC). These groups provide valuable input for ongoing program improvement. They additionally receive information about curriculum, instruction, program evaluation, and budget. The Disney ELAC reviews, contribute to, and approves the Single Plan for Student Achievement and provides valuable feedback on how certain monies are spent. The committee consists of all parents of English Learners, the principal (Mrs. Hwang), the ELD Specialist (Mrs. Jackson), and the ELD Instructional Assistants.
This year, ELAC will meet virtually. We will cover topics of discussion that are of interest to you and increase your students' achievement. Your participation is critical for their success.
The ELAC Meetings will be held on the following days:
· Tuesday September 15th 2:30 – 3:30
· Tuesday November 10th 2:30 – 3:30
January 26, 2021 from 2:00pm – 3:00pm (link will be sent out before meeting)
March 16, 2021 from 2:00pm – 3:00pm (link will be sent out before meeting)
The information we provide parents is steered by parent requests and needs. Past ELAC meeting topics have included assistance in using district websites, parent conference tips, middle school information from a middle school counselor, a presentation from the Burbank Adult School director, a presentation from a Burbank Public Librarian, and many more! This year the focus of many meetings will be distance learning.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our ELAC meetings!
