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.

    District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC)

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

    DELAC Meetings

    Meetings are typically Fridays from 9:00 - 10:00 a.m. and are located at the CSD District Office Professional Development Center at 4115 Jacksol Drive, San Jose Ca 95124. 

    NOTE: For the 2021-2022 school year, all meetings will be held virtually through Zoom until further notice.  For more information about the District English Learner Advisory Committee and parent involvement, please refer to the following contacts:
