Clifford ELAC (English Learning Advisory Council) Meeting

Who can serve on the ELAC?

Any student's parent or community member can serve on the ELAC. The ELAC executive board is made up of five ELAC members who can only be elected by parents of English Learners. At least three members of the executive board must be parents of English Learners themselves. The chairperson must be a parent of an English Learner in attendance at the school.

What are the responsibilities of the ELAC?

  • Consult with parents regarding academic services provided to English learners. All ELAC meeting agendas are publicly posted and meetings are a matter of public record.
  • Advise in the development and implementation of the school site plan for services and programs for English learners and submit them to the district's governing board.
  • Review the school's language census report and academic achievement results when developing the school's plan for English learner services and programs.
  • Help make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.

Our Next ELAC meeting is, January 21 at 3PM in room 16
