English Learner Advisory Committee

Each California Public School From Kindergarten through grade 12, with 21 or more English learners must form a functional English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). The ELAC is a committee for parents or other community members who want to advocate for English Learners.

The purpose of the ELAC is to advise the principal and school staff on programs and services for English learners and the SSC on the development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement.  The ELAC also assists the school on other tasks listed below:

  • The school's program for English learners.
  • The development of the Single School Plan for Student Achievement.
  • The school's needs assessment.
  • The school's annual language census.
  • Efforts to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.

The percentage of parents of English learners on the committee must be at least the same as that of English learners at the school.

Requirements for ELAC elections include:

  1. Parents/guardians of English learners elect parent members of the school committee.
  2. The parents/guardians are provided the opportunity to vote for committee members.
  3. Each school committee shall have the opportunity to elect at least one member to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC).

The district shall provide for all ELAC members:

  1. Appropriate training and materials to assist each member to carry out his or her legally required advisory responsibilities.
Training planned in full consultation with ELAC members.
