English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC)

  • You Are Invited!

    to an English Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC) Meeting Near You

    Are you a parent of an English Language Learner (EL) or of a student who has been reclassified to Fluent English Proficient (FEP)? If so, are you aware of the English Language Learners Advisory Committee (ELAC) at your school? This is an invitation to all parents of English Learners, and the community, to join and attend the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) meetings at your site. These meetings provide information on programs and services for English Learners. They give parents of EL students the opportunity to advise school leaders on EL programs and services, and provide input on school decisions such as the Single Plan for Student Achievement, purchases related to the EL program, the annual school language census, a needs assessment, and other school-related decisions. All ELAC members receive training on ELAC roles, rights and responsibilities, as well as training to assist them in advising on programs and services for EL students. All schools in the Alvord Unified School District have ELAC meetings. Contact your school office for information on the date, time, and location of your next meeting. We encourage you to attend these meetings, learn as much as you can, and even hold an office!
