District English Learner Advisory Committee

  • English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

    Whenever there are 21 or more English Learners at a school site, there needs to be a functioning English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The committee advises the principal on the development of the school plan for English Learners. The committee assists the school by conducting the needs assessment and administration of the language census. The parents of English Learners are elected and one of the members serves as the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) representative.  Please contact your child’s school for more information on the ELAC and meeting dates.

    The District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC) advises the governing board on the local plan for English learner education, district-wide needs assessment, and setting district goals for English learner education. The DELAC assists the district with a language census report, written parent notification of initial assessment, the district’s reclassification process, review of and comments on any related waiver request, and a timeline for the development of the local plan for English Learners' education. The majority of the DELAC are parents of EL students.
