ELAC Parent Meeting

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 ELAC is to advise the school principal and the staff about the programs and services for students that are learning English as a second language.
