English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) Overview

  • What is 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.

    2. The ELAC shall assist the school in the development of:
    1. The school's needs assessment.
    2. The school's annual language census.
    3. Ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
