English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

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 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:

The district shall provide for all ELAC members:

Training planned in full consultation with ELAC members.
