ENGLISH LANGUAGE ADVISORY COMMITTEE (ELAC)
The purpose of ELAC is threefold. First, through ELAC meetings parents are informed of the school’s program to bring their children to fluency in English. Second, the parents are asked to advise the school of any way that it may support these English learners. Finally, through ELAC, parents are oriented to the school system and are given additional information so they may support their children at home. New officers are elected every year and parents suggest topics for future meetings. ELAC meets every month, check school calendar for dates.
