ELAC and DELAC

Parents of students who are 'emerging bilinguals' (learning English as a second language) are invited to be part of these important meetings that help you understand how we can work together to support your child's academic success. Join us this coming Friday, 10/18 at 2:30 in the Library for our first English Learning Advisory Committee (ELAC) meeting of the year. Interpretation services are available upon request. Child care and light refreshments are available. We are also looking for a parent to represent Westwood at the monthly DELAC meetings on the 3rd Thursday of each month. Please contact Mrs. Klinkner if you are available to attend.

Special Education Community Advisory Committee - Representative Needed

This board-approved committee provides a forum for parents to engage with our SELPA on matters relating to special education. This includes all areas including programming, transportation, staffing, and student outcomes. The CAC meets on the 1st Tuesday of each month and is open to all community members, regardless of if they are a parent or caregiver of a student in our district. If you have a child in the Special Education program, and would be interested in representing Westwood at these meetings, please contact Mrs. Klinkner at 925-685-4202. Site representatives will be invited to attend the meetings and periodically share events and news about programs, strengths and challenges about special education at your site. We truly want to provide the best customer service we can to our students and while we are all aware of challenges, we also want to hear from our experts, our students and families, about ways in which we can support them! See flyer for more details.
