English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC)

According to the California Department of Education (CDE), each California public school with 21 or more English learners must form an English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC). 
The ELAC shall be responsible for the following tasks:
  • Advising the principal and staff in the development of a site plan for English learners and submitting the plan to the School Site Council for consideration of inclusion in the School Plan for Student Achievement.
  • Assisting in the development of the schoolwide needs assessment.
  • Ways to make parents aware of the importance of regular school attendance.
  • Each ELAC shall have the opportunity to elect at least one member to the District English Learner Advisory Committee (DELAC). Districts with 31 or more ELACs may use a system of proportional or regional representation.
Parents or guardians of English learners shall constitute at least the same percentage of the ELAC membership as their children represent of the student body. For RLPA, that is approximately 22%.
The parents or guardians of English learners shall elect the parent members of ELAC. Parents or guardians of English learners shall be provided the opportunity to vote in the election.


WEDNESDAY, January 25  2:45-3:45 PM
ELAC will meet in person in the RLPA library. If you can't make it to the meeting, you can join through Zoom using the link below.
Information will be presented in English and in Spanish.
