This important committee advises a school on its efforts to increase English fluency on campus. When a school has 21 or more English Learners, it must form an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC).
The primary purpose of ELAC is to advise the school principal and school staff regarding the instructional programs and support services for English Learners. ELAC is also responsible for advising the School Site Council (SSC) and reviewing the Site Plan for Student Achievement (SPSA).
The school is responsible for training and providing appropriate support to all ELAC members. By doing so, ELAC members will be well-informed and thus be able to communicate meaningful input and advice to the school about its efforts to educate English Learners.
If you'd like to get involved in the ELAC, contact the office.
