Dear Parent/Guardian:


You are invited to become an active voice in the educational programs for English learners (ELs) by becoming a member of the English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). By participating in ELAC, you will:


  • Learn more about the programs offered to English learners
  • Participate in the school’s needs assessment
  • Advise the principal and school staff on positive and effective strategies for teaching English learners
  • Provide valuable input on ways to support full participation of ELs in all school activities

ELAC members are elected by the parents of English learners yet the parents/guardians of all students are welcome to participate.


The first ELAC meeting will take place on October 12 via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. At that time, we will discuss the roles and responsibilities of ELAC members, nominate and vote for parent and school site representatives, and discuss future meeting days and times.


I hope you will be able to join me for this meeting and consider nominating yourself or another parent/guardian to become an ELAC member for this school year. If you are interested in becoming an ELAC parent representative, please fill out this Google Form (shorturl.at/jmqE5).
