The English Learner Advisory Committee (ELAC) is a group of English Learner parents and community members who advise and assist schools in making important decisions related to services for English Learners. The California Education Code requires an ELAC be formed at schools with more than 20 identified English Learners. 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.
The DELAC, or subcommittee on English learner education, shall advise the district's local governing board (e.g., in person, by letters/reports, or through an administrator) on programs and services for English learners. The DELAC shall be responsible for advising the district's local governing board on the following tasks:
a. Development or revision of a district master plan of education programs and services for English learners, taking into consideration the Single School Plan for Student Achievement
b. Conducting a district-wide needs assessment on a school-by-school basis
c. Establishment of district programs, goals, and objectives for programs and services for English learners (e.g., parental exception waivers and funding)
d. Development of a plan to ensure compliance with any applicable teacher and instructional aide requirements
e. Administration of the annual language census (e.g., procedures and forms)
f. Review and comment on the district's reclassification procedures
g. Review and comment on the written notifications required to be sent to parents and guardians.
